This was for the Travel: America, Russia, Australia swap. I had so much fun with this! Since I didn’t have any appropriate images available, I sketched these out in ink by hand and they were coloured with watercolour pencils and colouring pencils. I forgot how long it’s been since I’ve sketched… it felt really good, but I think this is something I need to do far more often as I felt so rusty. I tried to pick out some famous landmarks for each country—the Golden Gate bridge, St. Basil’s basilica, and Sydney skyline—although I admit to taking a few liberties.
