a few more sketches

I'm enjoying looking through pictures I took in Paris to now turn into sketches.  

Here's a more complex attempt - the Paris Opera House, which I actually didn't see; Dan took this photo.



My humble attempt..........starting to include darks and some shadows (ala Marc Taro Holmes sketching video series)


This one was a quicker sketch with the idea of hinting at the row of fall trees some with no leaves and some with fall color.  That's a row of parked cars on the right.....obviously need to work on that!  :) Color again added with Inktense.  Will graduate to watercolor sometime soon.

  1. Look good to me. In this kind of illustration I suspect practice, practice, practice...? xox

  3. Love the street scene. To me, this is what sketching should be - totally evocative of the moment. The opera house is nice too, but I know all those lines would make me crazy. I don't have the patience for that much detail work. Pretty soon you'll have a great sketchbook of your trip.
