Boats, Swans and a BridgeTuesday, July 21, 2009
Yes, I know I haven't posted in some time, but I have been sketching!
Here are a few sketches done over the Fourth of July weekend in Mystic, CT. There was a man attempting to put up a sail, and as he kept circling around the same area while doing so, it gave me an opportunity to get the major shapes down.
I also liked the way an abandoned boat looked, aground on the shore, so I added a sketch of that as well.
Some swans decided to sun themselves on the little beach near my in-laws' house:
And this is a super-fast sketch done this past Saturday while sitting on the Lambertville, NJ, side of the bridge that takes pedestrians and cars across to New Hope, PA:
