Charles driving

I got to be a passenger in the car today so drew this while on the road which was a first. I have painted before but never drawn. Excuse the wobbly lines.

    Such nice details. I think drawing and sketching while someone else is driving is a great way to record a trip with gesture sketches. I filled an entire small book with drawings as my son drove me from Central California to Oregon. I think you can see them here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sketchrboy/sets/72157626594860897/ We are off to Turkey next week and would you believe it, I have made contact with Urban Sketchers in Istanbul and Kusadasi. What a world. I will keep watching your wonderful posts, though.

    • These are great sketches Lee. I found that sketching really made the long drive more pleasant too.
      Have a wonderful trip to Turkey!! I can’t wait to see what you do there. It is going to be great to meet the other sketchers there. Safe travels!

    Good steady hands! Your sketch turned out very well. I approve of your choice of car too.

    Time for some catch-up…
    Not bad sketching for someone in a moving car. And also a sketch which tells us a lot… Charles needs a shave, the car is a Subaru, you were on your way to NY and you were sitting in the back seat… presumably sent there because you kept telling Charles how to drive? : )

  4. Nice! I drew my friend in the front passenger seat from the rear seat once as we were coming back from a pub, though he warned me that I’d “better not effing draw me!” as I was drawing him, though he was just fine with it anyway. That’s just part of being a sketch artist; we don’t just set up shop on city street corners or rural fields. Sometimes it’s those unexpected place that give you the very interesting drawings.

    • Those are undoubtably the best ones, the unexpected places. One of my favourites is one I did at my parent’s residence, of an old guy sitting in the sun. Just caught a moment.
