Sketch and Watercolor: Little Vintage Campers

When were were little girls, my sister and I used to ask our mother to “tell us about the old timey-times.” I have always loved the good old days, so my current interest in all things vintage is really nothing “new.”

In my Wild Art Summer class, one of the projects involves sketching and painting little vintage campers. I just don’t have the knack yet—my sketches lack something. But I will keep practicing, and maybe I’ll just “get it” at some point!

The discussions in my class about “old campers” prompted me to get out a photo of our very first home, an 8 x 29 trailer, smaller than several of the campers we have owned since that time. I loved it!
