sketching scavenger hunt: clue one (storytelling in perspective)

Page one of a two-page spread. In front of the Foust building. I used pen & colored pencil. The lyrics are from a song on my ipod. The drawing has nice color, but it looks a little "kiddish" to me. If that makes any sense. I could have done better with my colored pencil rendering if I took a little more time, I think. But marker looks more professional.

Page two.

Right outside the EUC. I used pen and marker for this one. Marker is definitely my favorite rendering medium to use, though I'm not sure how effectively I use it. Oh, and I used white colored pencil on just the grass.

class trip - a couple of sketches

I sketched this scene outside Monticello. Beautiful trees lined a long path and I kind of gravitated towards them. I regret not actually sketching the building itself.

This is a quick sketch of a detail from our visit to Falling Water. It was almost time to leave and I wanting to get a little something in my sketchbook. I wish I could have added more...

context, atmosphere, scale

I drew this scene right outside of the EUC building. Context is shown by the building details in the background. The atmosphere is very peaceful - the trees seem to dominate the space. They are fresh and yellow-green with the recent emergence of springtime. Scale is shown primarily by the trees and the scale figure. The tiny tree in the distance shows the clear depth of the space.
