A couple of years ago, I’d have grumbled about not finding time (or stuff) to sketch when I got really busy at work. But since I joined the group Urban Sketchers, I’ve realized everything around me is sketchable- and 10 minutes is good enough for a quick sketch. So I draw in little bits of time I can find.
I can’t tell one car model from another, but they are fun to draw when you think of them as oddly-shaped, sometimes menacing-looking beasts, mostly sitting around parking lots.
Love the orange of all sorts of repair trucks. If I see one when I’m driving, I check the time: Enough time to do a quick sketch and still make it to my appointment on time? I pull up and draw.
There must never be any car breakdowns in Gilroy, because this tow truck is permanently parked in front of the repair shop. See the twin palms? Once you notice them, you’ll see them everywhere…
Quick parking lot sketch. Cars in parking lots in suburbia= Cows in fields in the countryside. Do you see the parallel? Or is it just me??
