The real reason for visiting Las Vegas was a trade show (NAHB - National Association of Home Builders and KBIS - Kitchen & Bath Industry Show) ... but managed to play a couple rounds of golf. Club Corp - Bear's Best Las Vegas is made up of 18 holes selected by Jack Nicklaus from his 270 designs worldwide.
It's not hot in Las Vegas in January, but it is much warmer than Canada! Daytime high was about 19°C (or 66.2°F), with nights getting down to 7°C (or 44.6°F).
A trip to Nashville in December, included golf, music, hockey, historic architecture, neon lights, great weather, lots of people… maybe too many people for me! Played a round of golf at the Hermitage Golf Course, it took a while to get accustomed to the colours. The grass on the fairway was dormant, so yellow ochre or brown. The greens were the only green on the course.
My golf sketches were originally scattered in different sketchbooks. In 2016, I said "I will sketch every golf hole I play". Some rounds are slow... lots of time for sketching plein air and some rounds are fast... no time for sketching, so sketched later from reference photos. The colour is always added later.
