Machu Picchu

Last week, on my Birthday, I visited Machu Picchu.  It was amazing and much more impressive and interesting that I had hoped for. The tour took a couple of hours and was fascinating.  Afterwards, I found a shady bench to do this drawing from.  This is the beginning of the rainy season, so I was lucky to have a clear sunny day, and relatively few visitors.

As good as the tour was, it raised many questions in my mind about the Inca civilization - now that I'm home, I'll be searching for a good book about those amazing people.


  1. Looks like an amazing place John. Glad to see that the triad of colours made it all the way up there.

    1. oh boy, do I have some paints for you Shari !....there is a manufacturer in Kingston that makes creamy luscious colours at 1/4 the price of every one else's precious little tubes - look up tri-art in Kingston

    2. I will do that right now John! I'm loving your Peru sketches.

  2. I haven't been following you lately, (been head down on a project for months) - really great to come by and see this series on Peru. Looks like another tremendous sketch-adventure!
