The Catemaco lake Area

The Lake Catemaco area from lakeside in the southern end of the state of Veracruz. Or from a birds-eye view. Look closely so you don't miss the brujas. (witch doctors)

Making the Catemaco Drawing

The town of Catemaco boasts great food and beautiful architecture. The La Iglesia de Catemaco makes a beautiful subject for this drawing.

Making the Isla Aguada Drawing

On the small Isla Aguada we find Parker working in Benito Juarez park.

After a day of drawing Scott could walk to the fish market and get an fresh snapper for dinner, or just visit a local restaurant for a cerveza and let them do the cooking.

Edzna Ruins

Inland from the city of Campeche is the Edzna Ruins. Scott took some great photos. Here are two, but the rest can be seen by clicking this link. It may take some time to load, but they're worth it.

Here's where Edzna Ruins are located.

 

Campeche

After working at the Edzna ruins, Parker stops in the town of Campeche to re-charge his batteries, so to speak at the "Salon Rincon Colonial".
