I go more places than just the grocery store these days, but it's the only place where I always sketch. Here is my sketch from today, plus a very quick sketch of the Clark Tower (those stripes!) while I was filling up the car with gas and while my pen was running out of ink.
Today I sketched with a Sailor fude fountain pen, which I've just fallen back in love with. It took me a long time to get used to it, but once I did I loved it. I guess my love faded for a while but it's back now.
Some days I get lucky and get the first pickup spot, where I can practice one-point perspective. I also felt the need to pay tribute to the hardest working machine in our house.
Sometimes I get the view of the back of the fire station that's next door to Kroger. Sometimes I get a banana.
I was excited to have a new subject to draw while waiting - bikes! I love the confusion of lines when drawing bikes. The bike rack and lock added extra challenges. Today (top sketch) I had a different view of the bike rack and was able to show it in context.
Sketchwork is sketches and work about sketching - teaching, making art, art supplies, books, sketchers, artists, Urban Sketchers, Memphis Urban Sketchers, and traveling.
