Here are a couple of sketchbook drawings I did during my recent trip to Bali, Indonesia. I was there on a meditation retreat at a beautiful center near the island’s biggest volcano, Mt. Agung. The watercolor sketch is of the stairs leading up to the center’s dining hall. From this side, you can see three […]
Did this fun little sketch awhile back of local donut shop, Spudnuts, with a few friends from the Charlottesville Urban Sketchers group. Little did I know that this local icon had been sold and was soon to shut its doors forever. For years, Spudnuts was a favorite among the locals and students at UVA. […]
Met up with my local Urban Sketchers group, eager to try out the S Pen on my new Samsung Note 5. I was running late that day, so didn’t really have time for more than the one sketch shown above. I used S Note, an app that comes pre-installed. Overall, I was very happy with how […]
I got to participate in a local Urban Sketchers gallery showing at the Virginia Center for Architecture in Richmond, which marked my first galley showing in a pretty long time. The event was organized by Jessie Chapman, who is a long-time board member of UrbanSketchers.org, an international organization that promotes sketchbook drawing. The exhibit features […]
Went to the downtown library today with some of the Urban Sketchers. Had a nice view of the street from a cozy window seat in the children’s book section. #urbansketchers #sketchbook
Met with the Urban Sketchers this Super Bowl Sunday at Buffalo Wild Wings. We got there well before the big crowds came, which was good since that gave us plenty of time to sketch, eat and talk without feeling pressured to give up our table. First image was colored digitally at home.
Joined the Urban Sketchers for the plein air event at the Miller School of Albermarle. It was a gorgeous day of sitting in the sun and the grass! Here’s hoping we get a few more days like this one before winter sets in. You can see photos of other artists at the […]
Did some sketching from the Water Street parking garage with the Urban Sketchers this weekend. I’ve been wanting to go there for awhile now and was so happy that it got picked. Parking garages are a great place to get good city views, provided the security people don’t have a problem with it. The […]
Did a little sketching with the Urban Sketchers this last weekend. We went to Carter’s Mountain Orchard, sketching tourists and freshly picked peaches. It’s been over a month since I joined up with them, and boy did I feel rusty!
Now I can finally justify my smartphone. Did these using Samsung Memo. I have to say, my favorite thing about this is that I now have no excuse to not do some sketching whenever I’m out and about.
