Artist Betsy McLoughlin holds a series of sketches from cafés in France that she made while visiting Europe as she stands in front of watercolors that she made that are on display at Colorado Canyons Gallery. She said she often sketches rather than taking photographs as memoriabilia.

Local artist gives tops for putting worries aside, adding sketching to your life

Betsy McLoughlin was self-conscious about public sketching.

It was just one of those things she hadn’t done even though she been sketching her entire life.

But when she retired from teaching Spanish at Mesa State College nearly 10 years ago, she and her husband planned trips to Europe. There was no way she was going to miss the opportunity to sketch the Eiffel Tower, so she decided to leave her nervousness behind.
