Working whilst Travelling

A difficult task to paint and draw, whilst travelling to Detroit, New Orleans and New York, within a short period of time.


A quick Watercolour sketch of New Orleans, blue and purple house, in historical Seventh Ward, where I stayed.


Tools of the trade, watercolour paints, water, small brush. It was enough equipment to capture a quick sketch, and convey the vibrancy, mess and ultimately the essence of a fascinating part of the world.
