|Sketch from my Cruise Sketch Book|
Day three of my cruise vacation. We had a day to explore St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. I have been to St. Thomas several times and one of my favorite spots is beautiful Magens Bay. I have done several paintings from photos I took at the beach. On of the paintings, 'Magens Bay Shade' was selected by the Caneel Bay Resort on the island of St. John for the artwork in their guest rooms.
Today I decided to bring along my sketchbook to Magens Bay. I always take a lot of photos but I love to sketch and find that my sketches can often evoke more memories than a photo can. I can look back on the sketches I did during my last cruise and vividly recall the scene or person in the sketch.
