Artwork Done on Guadeloupe
Travel artwork done on Guadeloupe Beach in Saint Anne on Guadeloupe

In this post you can see the artwork I did on Guadeloupe on location in my sketchbook and in my art journal. You can also see how I filled in a small concertina foldout journal consecutively each evening back at our lodgings, to summarize the events of our day. That’s particularly fun, since it records and captures the essence of our days together in one place. You can see a short video of the concertina book here.

The last photo shows the art kit I took: a 5″x5″ sketchbook, a 3″x4″concertina, and a 5″x7″ art journal with watercolor paper. I took gouache, a small bottle for water, tape I didn’t use, grid journaling viewfinders, artgraph sumi ink, brushes, and posca pens.  I never carried all of it with me when we went out for the day, but would pick a small assortment to go withme , depending on the activity. It worked pretty well, and all of it fit in a 1 gallon ziplock in my carry-on.

The art kit I took on the trip
I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
