Florida: A Pictoral


This page, from my handmade summer sketchbook, pretty much sums up my feelings about Florida tourist areas.

The heat and sand, for the record, are not a good setting to use Caran D’Ache Neocolor II wax pastels. The Neocolor II’s are very good, however, at forcing me to adopt a looser, more playful style. They’ve got such an interesting texture, as seen in the poolside sketches below:

Also, if you are in some luxurious location such as the gulf of Mexico, the sand will be quite fine and powdery, making it ten times more difficult to remove.

Art adventures, literary hangovers, rural politics and other songs worth sharing.
