Watercolors and sketching in Yosemite

Over the holidays, we went on a trip to Yosemite. I brought my stuff and did some sketching with a new Pentel Pocket Brush Pen.  I LOVED this thing!  Has an ink cartridge, but comes with actual (synthetic) bristles.  Very repsonsive.  Provides a nice variety of line width, as well as some nice bristly dry brush work, etc. I also did a plein air watercolor piece while I was out in one of the meadows.

Here's the plein air watercolor sketch (perhaps 9"x9")-

 

And here are some of the ink sketches I did--
Yosemite Falls in the winter-

Various scenes from the valley-


and some quick sketches of people in one of the cafes.  

A good time was had.  I've not sketched so much in a long time.  :)  The valley in the winter is wonderful.  Practically deserted.  Cold and quiet.  Parking's a breeze too!  LOL!
