So I made it back from Alaska in one piece, which isn’t too surprising. Although there was one part of the trip where things got a bit sketchy, but overall it wasn’t too bad. I had an amazing time and saw so many beautiful things.
After many years of wanting to visit Alaska, I finally planned a trip lasting 10-days across several different towns - Anchorage, Denali, Girdwood and Seward being the bulk of the trip. I’ve decided to go with watercolors and sketches for this trip and minimized my materials for ease of use when traveling.
I've always thought, 'what's the point of using and lugging around 10+ tubes of color when I can just use a limited palette and mix my own colors from just 3-5 main colors?'. And for the last 5-6 years of my painting career, I have relied heavily on a limited palette of red, yellow & blue to create 95% of my paintings. But things are changing - and I have decided to explore color more deeply in the hopes of creating paintings with stronger color moving forward.
