I was awarded prestigious grant which allowed me to travel to Spain for 6 months in 2008. I was based in Madrid, Spain, but also traveled near by countries. On this trip, my goal was to do copies at Prado Museum and also do plein air sketches as much as I could. As I was recording my journey by painting every city I visited, I also sketched everywhere I visited. Throughout my journey, I accumulated 7 sketchbooks. Here are the snap shots of my "Spanish Sketchbook."
