Watersoluble pencil sketch in Zion National Park

sepia water soluble pencil sketch on the Pa-Rus trail in Zion National Park

On one of my walks through Zion National Park last week, I stopped on the trail to sketch out a scene from the landscape. This was near Canyon Crossing on the Pa’rus trail. I used a Derwent Inktense pencil in Sepia in a HandBook Travelogue Sketchbook, and after sketching in the marks used a waterbrush to make a toned wash.

The sun hitting the rocks, mountains, and trees was making such interesting shadow shapes, which is what I was capturing here.
