The Sketchbook Challenge: Urban Sketching

June 15, 2012

The theme this month over at The Sketchbook Challenge is Urban Sketching.
I love nothing more than urban sketching. Cities enthrall me.
Hidden corners invite exploration and the wonderful energy of being in a place where people converge is something I thrive on.

Unfortunately this theme came right as my passel of kids came home from school for the summer. We’ve been into our lovely little city (Raleigh is definitely worth a visit!) but the most I had time to do was catch a kids hand before he ran out into the street. We passed by lovely old churches and engaging alleyways. We were on the move with no time for me to sketch.


So instead of urban sketches from me you get a little dose of life in sub-urbia.
A visit to the doctors office.


No excuses – there is always SOMETHING to draw!


At an outdoor concert – gotta be quick before people realize you are sketching them.


It’s not a precious book – it’s my “paper brain.”
I let the little ones borrow it when they ask.

    Thanks Laura. I really appteciare your kind words. There was a part of me that was actually looking forward to my jury duty day simply because it would give me a good opportunity to people watch and to draw on location which I don’t get to do often enough.
