One of the days that I was waiting for my hard drive to arrive it rained. I’m not one for sketching from photos but desperation will drive me to such extremes. My pointy device of choice is a very fine pen and I thought it might be an opportunity to play with pens that produce a heavier line and to use them in a more loose fashion than is my norm.
And so I did some quick sketches in a 3×5 sketchbook. Here are four of them.
The next day I went out sketching and continued the experiment. I stopped to pick up a coffee and drew the car across the street.
I was walking along the St. Charles River and decided to stop and sketch these rudbeckia. I’m not much of a flower sketcher but this was fun.
There is a large water regulation reservoir along the banks of the river and I decided to draw it as quickly as I could. I spent less than 15 minutes on it, which is something of a world record for me when it comes to doing buildings. I found the format too small for a building with all those fiddly bits.
