The Art of a Sketchbook - Friday

Random pencil sketches ...

I thought I'd share some random pencil sketches I had done.  This first one was from a camping trip to  Crater Lake.  It is beautiful ... no sketch will be able to capture its beauty.  If you haven't seen Crater Lake follow the link.

When you can't find anything else to sketch, sketch your hand.... right?  By my notes it looks like I was sketching my hand in preparation for painting my hand for a WetCanvas! (a website for artists)  project.

These are really 2 sketches from this one page in my sketchbook.  The top one is looking out at the Pacific Ocean and sketching some small waves coming in ... with gulls in the air.  Below that is looking  over a bay toward some homes that overlook the Pacific.

I think if you click on the images they might enlarge if you can't see them well enough as they are.

It is really fun to look back at my sketchbooks and remember when we were here or there.  And to think I really did remember to bring my sketchbook and do some sketching.  Now that is amazing!
On another note .... have you tried using the new 'Search this Blog' gadget on the upper right of this page?  A fun new feature.

  1. I visited Crater Lake when I lived in Oregon, and not even a photo can do it justice. Have you ever visited The Three Sisters wilderness area ?; that's another treat.
