I, too, am a plein air sketcher and sometime watercolorist. When not camping/traveling I sketch with a group at home who have met every Monday for over 25 years! I just returned from a 19-day group tent camping trip to Southern Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa. There, on safari, I challenged myself to sketch the animals we saw such as elephant, giraffe, impala, baboons and lions. I had little time to do quick sketches and the animals kept moving but I'm happy with my improvement in ability to capture the essence of the animals while others were happily snapping photos. Sketching forces meto really "see" what is before me and provides a special documentary of my trip.
