Travel inspiration

The past few years I've kept a travel sketchbook when we go on vacation, but there are many great vacation images from the past that I never sketched. This 20 minute sketch (pen and watercolor, 5 1/2" x 8") was from from one of these old photos. It's a view of the very interestingly shaped "copper pot stills" at the Labrot & Graham (Woodford Reserve) bourbon distillery in Versailles, KY. As I recall, the stills were custom made in Scotland and shipped to KY and assembled there. If you happen to be a whiskey or bourbon connoisseur, Woodford Reserve is truly a top shelf bourbon superior to any other, and it was a fascinating distillery tour.
