Sketching, for a change

I spent a great morning sketching with my friend Ed Huff in lovely Hope Valley, RI. Ed has been dedicated to an on-line ink sketch challenge and has been doing some great work. I was a wimp and used pencil, although I tried to be really focused and not to use the eraser very much.

 I started with this Victorian, and broke out the color pencils to do this detail of the flag and gingerbread. I somehow missed one of the decorative cutouts at the top.

Turned around and saw this cute little old millworker house.

Then we headed back to Providence to draw this asphalt plant on Allens Ave. Quite a challenge.
