I uploaded some more sketches from last summer to my Flickr page this morning. I'm getting more excited about heading back to Rome for another summer of teaching and drawing. I'm considering a sketch project of some sort ... probably a Moleskine watercolor book filled with daily sketches using a variety of media and recording a variety of subject types - plans, sections, diagrams, representational sketches, notes, etc.
This drawing was from Atrani, on the Amalfi Coast. Just made hotel reservations for the group yesterday ... we'll be there the weekend of June 12 ... can't wait.
I teach architecture at the University of Idaho - design studios, architectural graphics courses, and a professional practice course. One of my passions outside of teaching ... and music, and plants, and mycology, and ... is observing and understanding the world through sketching with various media, such as pencil, pen, charcoal and watercolor. Passing along the same skill and interest to students is a goal I've pursued through my teaching here in Moscow, Idaho, and through an 8-week study-abroad program in Rome each summer.
