Beginning March, 2016 I will begin posting one drawing a week to my website. Each drawing comes from over 50 pen and ink/pencil sketches from my book, One Woman's River-A Solo Source-To-Sea Paddle on the Mighty Mississippi River. The entire book (with over 100 color paintings and sketches) will be available for purchase through my store at ellenmcdonah.com. I hope you enjoy them.
These sketches are made using the art supplies that I took on my voyage on the Mississippi River. I used Conte Crayons, pencils, charcoal, graphite, ink, and even coffee. I carried a small sketch pad and a few canvases. All of the sketches in my book and paintings have either been done during the trip, or created using original sketches from the trip. Each chapter of my book, One Woman's River starts with a sketch, and my plan is to post a sketch a week until they are all posted here.
