From October to January 2012, I created these travel drawings in Chile. I traveled from the northern Atacama Desert to as far south as Cochrane, in beautiful Patagonia. Chile offered some of the best scenes for travel sketching, bringing me near La Serena, along the coast to Valparaiso, Santiago, the island of Chiloe and Patagonia.
