When we were in Charleston last April, I knew I wouldn't be able to comfortably whip out a sketch book, sit down on the curb, and begin sketching because we were traveling with dear friends and I am the only sketcher in the group; so I took lots of reference photos, and of course planned to create all kinds of sketches in my sketchbook when I got home; but, I have been procrastinating.
Lately I have been inspired by Rob Carey's work. Rob is an American teacher living somewhere in Europe. Lucky him, he has all kinds of beautiful architectural scenes to sketch and toss online; and he does much more than 'just' architectural scenes. I love the loose, high energy of his sketches and hope to learn something from them.
Here's his flickr site: go check it out for yourself. You'll see what I see. Just don't compare my work to his! He's one of sooo many people whose work I really admire.
watercolor, ink, some photoshopping for enhancements.
