Byron Bell, with his wife, Susan, has traveled to just about 100 countries over a 40-year time span. They have generally managed to stray from the “beaten path” in their search for useful crafts, indigenous structures, and spectacular landscapes. The sketches are always done on site with ink and watercolor. While sometimes a look at a drawing, completed a day, or a week, or a month earlier, might suggest modification, a highlight or some other emphasis, Byron believes that the freshness of the drawings should not be tampered with.
