Sketching up hikers for a hall of fame

Portraits of hikers are hard to do – but that’s how you get better at it…

Update and drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt, Hiking.org

For a long time I’ve been wanting to make a collection of hikers and outdoor people that tell good stories, has hiked in special ways, or in other ways made hiking more interesting. Now the first ten watercolor sketches of such hikers are up with links to their websites… With a few well-known names in between ( Like Bear Grylls, Cheryl Strayed, Andrew Skurka and more )   Let me know if the idea is worth continuing. Bet there are a lot of interesting hikers from all over the world out on the trails… See the first ten portraits here, with the challenged watercolor sketches, I did of them:
