I recently traveled to Brazil with my wife Linda to teach a workshop at the 2014 Urban Sketchers Symposium in Paraty. I don't know if I can effectively communicate just how important and meaningful this trip was to me in so many ways. For the first time, I got to meet so many of the Urban Sketchers whose work I've know for years and years. I got a chance to sketch with people who shared the same passion and enthusiasm that I have for sketching. Linda also started sketching, and is now becoming as passionate as I am about it. I've taken away too many amazing things from that trip, and it will probably take a little reflection to fully appreciate the experience.
There are far too many images I could share from the trip to post. For the full visual experience, including photos, go to my Flickr page and my wife Linda's.
I will post my sketches, in chronological order, from our trip to Rio, then Paraty, then back to Rio. Clicking them will take you to their Flickr page and a little more information.
All in all, one of the best experiences of my life. Linda and I are already planning on coming back!
