Somewhere New - Landscape on a Business Card

I was out of town last week so I was sketching somewhere new all week, but sketching somewhere new had a different meaning for me with these little projects.




And, here's the real "Draw somewhere new" challenge - my favorite bus driver of the trip. She chattered away entertaining us and was completely sweet and helpful to a young man who was lost and late for dinner with his dad. It was a bit of a chore to draw this on a moving bus without getting queasy. I kept having to look out of the window for little bits at a time.

These are gorgeous little landscapes! I wish I could draw with ink like that, I usually muck it up. Lovely story about the bus driver helping the boy who was lost.

I like your landscapes very much but expecially I like that it shows that there is always something to sketch on.
The pictures remind me of scenes around Taos, New Mexico. Where were they sketched?

Lovey idea to do that on the back of your cards, Lovely sketches and a really nice one of the bus driver.

I did these sitting on the bed in a motel room watching TV. There are kind of like a mountain over the valley where I live. I haven't given any away yet, it's a good idea -- I think I'll paint some more and do that.

These are great ideas for a business card...I found a great printer online a while back.

I ordered mine there and they did a great job.

You should paint up a biz card and hand them out to everybody :-)

Keep up the gret work!
