Some sketches from my Tobago trip. The first ones are a couple of hillside houses visible from my porch.
On Friday morning we waited at the Castara bus stop for an hour. I sketched this view down Castara’s main street while I waited.
This was my first attempt at sketching Cemetery Hill.
This was a close-up of the tin shack from the drawing two posts ago.
Some of the best work I've done isn't hanging on a wall; it's sitting in a box in my closet that's full of my old sketch books. I fill up one or two books each year. Some of the sketches end up as a basis of a more formal work, but most don't. They’re more important to me as a pictorial diary and also as on-going training; learning to really see and to understand shape, light and color.
This blog is to share my sketches as well as my sketching experiences.
