More sketches in California

Palo Alto sketch © Evelyn Howard 2011

We were in sunny Palo Alto (about an hour south of San Francisco) for a couple of weeks. It was sunny everyday – perfect for sketching outdoors.

Along the Embarcadero in San Francisco. These plants belong to a restaurant. There are always many people along the Embarcadero, including tourists.

Further south along the Embarcadero, I spotted this lovely building across the road.

Wishing you a wonderful week.

I love the simplicity of your drawings Evelyn. You get right to the point and your composition is always balanced. You're quite a talented woman.

Thanks. Hope you are enjoying your time in Europe before heading to China again.

I like your touch and style of drawing. I feel more sunlight because of whitish color tone in these sketches.

Have a happy and restful weekend.

Have you ever thought about making a travel book with your sketches? I saw a Japanese tourist book with some sketches and thought about you ;D

Let me add my encouragement to Kaori's!

PS. What are you doing to promote yourself? I don't know what takes you on the road all the time, but what you do can be done anywhere, so you could (if you wanted, of course), be earning some income with your talent and skill.

Thanks Francisca,
Haha, you are right. I am just having too much fun, but food for thought definitely!
