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.

Trees and Fence

I penned some of this while waiting for a ride outside work. The next morning we sat at breakfast with crayons and scribbled away.


Here is my sketch-a-day for August so far. This is more fun than I expected it to be. I'm using Prismacolor markers that I bought on Ebay. It is an interesting exercise to draw a chunky picture in a 1 5/8" square. It's true that even when many aren't good, together they are fun. Even better when I squint :-)
