10 June, 2017. After teaching a three-day workshop with a singular subject focus last weekend, my sketching this week was sporadic and decidedly UN-focused. And a bit of randomness felt good after having stayed on target for the entirety of my workshop, as well as the Urban Sketchers International Day in the Life event that followed me.
Keeping things loose, trying diligently to represent only what is necessary, and making sure that there’s no question my images are drawn by hand – those are my goals.
Although these are two opposite pages in the sketchbook, and of two different subjects and locations, I like they way they seem to be a single composition.
