Sketching around the neighbourhood

Neighbourhood sketch © Evelyn Howard 2010

This sketch was completed at a coffee shop. I couldn’t finish it the first time, so I had to return a few days later. Luckily the same table was available. I have to learn to work faster in order to finish my pieces in one sitting.

My part of the world has a mix of old and new buildings. The corner building is an older one, while the  building next door (and further away) is an apartment block, which is relatively new. There are lots of palm trees that line the streets.

It’s currently winter where I am (Spring is just around the corner, yay!). I am looking forward to warmer days when I can sketch outdoors…

Hi Evelyn, What a wonderful drawing of your neighborhood! So nicely done! You did a great job with the perspective..but what I really like is that it retains a loose, fresh feel. Most impressive!

Very ably rendered, Evelyn - was this one of the series where you try to complete the piece in 20 minutes? This seems like a good discipline that encourages concentration. As always, «Louis» enjoys seeing your work.

That's a lovely sketch of your neighbourhood, Evelyn. I can feel its character.
