Vacation Sketchbook Play

Took a vacation; from home, computers, and from studio art business. But I took along my watercolors and a little sketchbook, as always.

This particular "dance of death" is only 3 1/2" x 3/4" and was pretty surely inspired by my summer read of World Without End by Ken Follett, who puts out fat volumes great for vacation reading. The novel's climax involved the Black Death of 1340-ish Europe. It provided some colorful, grisly dreams and a bunch of sketch subjects.

Who cares if my version looks more like the Funny-Hat 5k of Death? Not caring is the point--play in the sketchbook is total enjoyment.
