I had grand ambitions of sketching on buses and cafes when I was in Cuba. Events panned out where I ended up taking a break from drawing as well. I guess I just wanted to absorb everything around me. It seems like I work best in my little basement studio with all my books and trinkets to give me ideas. I went on a watercolour rampage before the trip and painted this lady. I love the simplicity of black & white it captures all the essentials of an image, don't you think?
