Sketches from Disney World

I just got back from one of my very favorite places to draw, Walt Disney World. This is the sixth time I've had the privilege of drawing WDW. I wish I could draw every detail of it, right down to its endless varieties of trash cans, lam posts, and restroom signs. It's something I'll never accomplish but it's fun to try anyhow. There are certain places in WDW that I especially enjoy drawing, such as Asia in animal kingdom, Main Street in the Magic Kingdom, and there's something about the tower of terror that I love to draw repeatedly. I also like drawing in the line queues, even though it usually gets some strange inquisitive looks from people passing me by in the line. I could spend hours drawing in the queue to expedition everest. Anyhow, below are some of the drawings from this past trip.



I think it's interesting to look back at the sketches I did in my first sketchbook at Disney World back in 2008. the one below is from that sketchbook (I've always loved those rickshaws and wagons in animal kingdom ;)



Here's a link to all my Disney sketches from this 2014 trip...

  2. These are really amazing.

    Question about process, do you go in with watercolor after the ink is there, or do you travel with a mobile watercolor set?

  3. That hank you Kira! To answer your question I usually do the lines in ink first, then do watercolor over top. But I usually do that while I'm there with a small watercolor travel kit, although occasionally I did the watercolorinf back in the room.

  4. Absolutely perfect. You capture the colors and moods so beautifully! These are so inspiring, reminds me why I moved to Florida in the first place! Gotta get back to field sketchin'! Besides water colors and ink, do you have any other favorite mediums?
