Around town

Sophie and I take quite a few walks around our little in-town neighborhood. Most of the time it is because she has to go out. Sometimes when it is a nice day, I throw my sketch book in my bag and out we go. So, while she sniffs the corners of every building, kisses anyone who shows an interest in her, growls at large dogs and barks at random cars and people, I am able to do a few quick sketches.

Monument Square—a few blocks up and over.

The corner of Fore and Exchange Streets—sitting across the street from our building.

arioneI especially love the dream look of the black and white one....what a talent you have to be able to get this done while walking the dog--amazes me..

Wow, incredible! It sounds lovely, going for a sketching walk... without time limit at the best. I'll have to do this some day! Your sketches are so vivid, I love them! I always wonder how long it takes people to do something like that. It'd certainly taking ages to draw buildings that neatly!

these are so wonderful! If I tried to draw with my german shepherd, cleo, at my side, all the buildings would be off the page!! You must have a very patient pooch. These are awesome!
