Sketches from Switzerland and Italy



I re-loaded these sketches as I thought the other ones were underexposed.  All are water colors and were done a week ago in Switzerland and Italy.

I love the fountain. How do you watercolor water?

Thanks, Jenny. You paint around it to leave the paper showing. I also added a few drops of opaque white, but not too much, so it was mostly the paper.

Very cool Spencer. I didn't know you were such an artist! If you come back out to Switzerland or Italy, shoot me an email. We could show you some great landscapes. :)

Thanks, Jessica. I get over to Switzerland fairly often, but is it usually around Geneva and Vevey. Glad you are enjoying your stay.
