Recent Drawings from My Sketchbooks

Some recent, selected works from a variety of sketchbooks. 
These fellows are spontaneous drawings from my head, with the exception of the blue lantern--drawn using an actual lantern as reference. 

Sketching is almost as good as meditation when I'm needing a bit of peace. I've been doing a lot of sketching lately.

I wish peace for you as well.

Thank you for checking in!

Landscape and Urban Sketching

Last Sunday's Plein Air group decided on an urban site. Instead of my paint set-up, 
I'd brought a sketchbook and drawing materials, planning on doing 
some research for a new project.

When doing on-location sketching of this type, I usually go for 
simplicity and quick studies, but...

...this intricate scene caught my eye. The planned research sketching went right out the window.

The complexity was a bit daunting, but decided to interpret the scene while 
capturing much of the detail.
Materials: Kona Classic toned paper sketchbook, Verithin Colored Pencil (Scarlet), 
Pentel Brushpen, Pilot Hi-Tech-C Pen (03), Uniball Signo (for white).
Thanks for reading!
