So on the Urban Sketchers Flickr page, there is a theme week thread. Last weeks was power poles which was suggested by I did a few power pole sketches. Power poles/power lines have always fascinated me. I love their honesty in form and their linear regularity. Here is the link to the Urban Sketchers page.

I have always loved the look of industrial facilities, manufacturing plants silos etc. There is something beautiful about their raw simplicity of forms and materials. So here are a few sketches of some manufacturing facilities.

Sketching on 9.9.9

OK, so I went out sketching yesterday on 9.9.9, and I had the intention of doing 9 sketches, because I am weird like that. But the rain and time caught up with me and I only managed 4 sketches. But still not bad for a relaxing after work sketch outing.

Churches in the neighborhood

Saturday I got to get out and do a little sketching...I decided it was time to sketch some of the churches in our neighborhood, there are some really good ones. I took E&H with me and their sketches are way better than are mine, I haven't scanned theirs yet.
