In honor of my dad, Kenneth, who's birthday would have been Valentine's Day, I am starting my blog about my trip to Scotland in the summer of 2017. I will be sharing watercolor sketches from my travel sketchbook. My process is to do some pages before leaving for the trip, some during, and many more when I return. I love the process of jounaling my favorites visual my favorite memories and adding what I learned about the history and culture of the place I have visited. This trip was special since it was a specific tour of members of the Clan Campbell of North America. We were able to not only see the great sights of Scotland, but many of the castles and the part that the Campbell Clan has played in the history of Scotland. As Robert Burns has written, "...wherever I wander, wherever I roam, the hills of the Highlands forever I love." My heart is in the HIghlands!
