Drawing on a plane











This is where I get to do sketching, but frankly I am getting bored of sketching on a plane. Maybe I am just sick of Being on Planes - hurtling around the country, worrying about crashing in high winds. Ah well, I do still choose to do this job - I could quit if I wanted to!

So I plug in my iPOD, take out my pencil and draw people in front of me on the plane - usually poor tired travelers heading home. Little to they know that they will be immortalized on my blog in not the most attractive positions.

I meant to erase the lines of th e sleeping guys hairline but didn't get to it - I'm trying to use those type of lines for guidance lines only. The one below I sketched out and then shaded and erased the lines of the vase. I like the way it came out. I'm also playing with my scanner to see how I can make pencil drawing have a litte more ommph. Which one do you like best - 1, 2 or 3 from top to bottom.???

I like the middle one-number 2.
Sounds like you are bit road weary, I've been there. In fact, I may still BE there. Traveling got to be such a habit that staying home was the hard part, and that is slowly changing.

Yes, the middle one for me. It has both strong contrast and subtlety of colour.

The sketches of sleeping guys are really great. They've got feeling.
As for the vase, my choice is 2.
