Sketches by the beach

Spirit of Tasmania © Evelyn Howard 2010

It was a lovely warm day yesterday, and we took the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. While on the beach, I managed to complete this sketch. The Spirit of Tasmania is a ferry that goes to and fro Melbourne and Devonport (Tasmania). 

Bicycle sketch © Evelyn Howard 2010

While having lunch at a cafe by the beach, I spotted some bicycles close by. I started drawing this one. When I completed the front wheel, the owner came by and left with his bicycle. I had to finish the drawing from imagination. LOL, my husband says this looks like a cross between a old bicycle and an old motorcycle!

Anyway, I am glad this week’s Illustration Friday’s theme is “transportation”, coz I’ve just done 2 pieces :). Happy drawing.

Nice work, Evelyn.

[So ignore my asking if you will, but I'd guessed from your posting so many Japan photos that you are of Japanese origin, but now I think perhaps Chinese. Makes little difference... but I thought it interesting that you confirmed what I'd said about Chinese-looking people getting razzed in China when they don't speak the language. Like your hubby, I get oohed and aahed all the time for my imperfect efforts. My hubby is fluent, though, in various dialects. :-) ]

I love your drawings! And I love your motor/bike, lol. I would think that could happen when out and about. That your subject could vanish, lol.
