Ireland in Watercolor

Recently in July I took up painting again, a hobby I had dabbled in for a couple of years after college.  I think I ended up putting it down for photography and just never made time to pick it back up for very long.  Feeling the need for change, I decided for a recent trip to Ireland that rather than use my camera, I would do watercolor sketches as we toured around.  It was a grand time.  I will definitely be working this into my regular work and I am glad I have taken it back up.
