On a recent trip to Fort McAllister State Park in Georgia with a group of artists, I had been under the weather for a few days and didn’t feel like lugging a heavy easel and canvases. I packed my travel kit and a small accordion-fold journal. Combining lettering, drawing, and watercolor painting, I captured the feel of the marsh and some botanical details. This turned out to be a very satisfactory way to remember the trip and add to my visual vocabulary for future paintings.
