Cityscape Drawing Progress

Here are some progress shots of a drawing I’m working on; an industrial area/cityscape in a 5″ x 8″ sketchbook. There are no photo references for this drawing; everything is out of my head, and based on different industrial scenes from the Washington, DC region. It’s a little-by-little project, slow going indeed, but a fun and challenging project none the less.

This is my one post for the week, as I’ll be busy exploring this “going to sleep early” thing I keep hearing about. In the meantime, welcome to all of the new followers here on Sketchbook Warrior, and thank you everybody for taking the time to check out my work, comment and/or liking the posts, and making me part of your online communities.








Downpour Sketch

Summertime thunderstorms come in hard and fast in Washington DC, so you better get ready to run for cover when the daytime skies turn ominously dark. Such was the situation here, when I took cover in a café waiting out yet another afternoon cloudburst. Luckily, I had my sketchbook, a Sakura Pigma pen, and a grey marker to pass the time along with a cup of coffee as I sketched the scene outside of the rain-drenched windows.
