These were done during our recent trip, and also yesterday in Paris, where we spent a great day with our new friends Sandy and Drena. I’m getting extremely fast when I sketch, and I think very much to the detriment of my drawing style. I’m going to try to slow down and work on detail for a while. Ronell and I met up the other day, and are going to try to reinstate our art afternoons, where we work for several hours on a subject one of us has set up. Out and about sketching has its good points, but I think it’s important to settle down and delve deeper as well.
Here are some travel sketches, done in airports, through restaurant windows, in trains, etc (the first one is my husband, looking older than he does in real life – sorry Michel!) These are all done with my little watercolor travel box, in a large watercolor moleskine.
and a bunch of ‘randomers’ as my daughter calls people she doesn’t know:
The following were all done yesterday – they’re in water soluble pencil and ink.
