I just returned from colorful, fragrant, peaceful Maui and had a lot of sketching time on the beach. Here are a few pages from my sketchbook. I was lucky enough to be traveling with my dad, artist Peter Zell, and i eavesdropped as he gave some painting tips to my nephew. The wheels in my head are turning, trying to come up with a Polynesian theme for a few watercolors--a colorful project to warm me up as the weather gets colder on the East Coast.
