Travel Sketches




Here is my last installment of my travel sketches. As you can imagine, I was busy with wedding festivities in NC and didn't have much time to draw ...














But, I leave you with these images of my trip that reflect feelings of excitement, boredom, exhaustion, and also wide-eyed wonder. I had fun!

Great stuff. I found planes are much more difficult than they seem. Nice cross-hatching too here. Thanks for sharing your adventures.

Really great sketches and lots of memories!

Anita said...

Great work on both of these, the plane is exceptional!

These are wonderful Joan. I am glad you had a good trip, despite all the long hours of travel.

Tracy ... Whoa, VA is next door! Yes, next time I am in your neck of the woods, I'll give a holler!

Steve ... Planes ARE hard! I wonder why. I never could get the perspectives right. If you find the trick, will you let me know?

Teri ... Thanks! Yes, very nice memories.

Anita ... Hey, thanks much! I had a lot of time to kill.

Kate ... Mahalo and also thanks for helping me pack! I was warm enough thanks to you.

Holy crap! Where was i? Where have i been, Joan? These two sketches are so much fun! It shows how much waiting traveling entails :-(
The perspective on the plane is so good!

Joan--I have been viewing your site. You have some nice art to show. I really like your line sketches. Will be looking in for more new art.

The perspective on that foreshortened plane - wow! Those are so darn hard to draw and you nailed it!
