a peek inside my sketchbook

If your haven't already guessed (by my snowy pics in a previous post) I have been in Colorado for the second half of my holiday vacation visiting family. A couple of days ago we were lucky enough to see the King Tut Exhibit at the Denver Art Museum (still remains one of my favorite museums out there).

Despite a snow storm and having to battle crowds, the exhibit was really amazing, beautiful and inspiring- it was like walking into a tomb full of treasure!

Unfortunately (for me) photography was prohibited (understandable) and no sketching was allowed- which is always my back up plan when I can't take photos. I could hardly stand it because typically when visiting a museum I take notes, jot down ideas and sketch out things that inspire me and then use these ideas in my sketchbook.

Luckily my mother in law had a pad of paper and pen in her purse and I was "secretly" able to get some loose notes and ideas down on paper. I used these notes in combo with a little internet research when we got back to the house and went to work in my sketchbook.

Here is a peek inside my King Tut inspired sketchbook pages...
