Backlog- Costa Rica sketches

As I mentioned previously, my website is a complete mess at the moment. I don't know what happened and quite frankly I don't know how to fix it. I'm looking at a complete overhaul (again) in the near future.

Anyway, I've finally managed to upload my Costa Rica sketches. I went to Costa Rica for six days in August and I sketched nearly every day (I'm so proud of myself). I always wanted to be one of those artists who keeps an amazing travel sketchbook, so hopefully I'm working my way up to that. I'm not very good at filling up the entire page and drawing over other things, but I started to do it a bit this time.

The Teatro Nacional in San José. San José really doesn't have that much going for it in terms of architecture, but this is one of the better historical buildings. Unfortunately it was closed when I sketched this. I also got a sunburn while sketching this.

A beach in Manuel Antonio. It was so humid here that the sand was constantly wet and stuck to you. I honestly thought I would pass out from the humidity. It never dried so and I kept finding sand in my clothes for the next few days.

Another beach sketch in Manuel Antonio. There really is nothing else to do on the beach but sketch the people lazing around.

Costa Rica is known for its orchids, some which are almost microscopic.
