SLC Sketches - 2


On South Main in Salt Lake City, Utah I bought a fun little journal in a used book store (Sam Weller's - if you've read your Pickwick you know that name...). The cover is like leather, has a nice feel. Inside the mustang emblazoned cover is a binding with dozens of small black and red images of nothing but Chevys. Knowing how we fought over Ford vs. Chevy as gradeschool boys (I was in the Chevy camp mostly because my best friend was rabid about it) this juxtaposition made me grin.



Here is a very windy sunset over the Oquirrh Mountains, southwest of downtown. I did this from the roof of a parking garage, knowing I would have a free viewing point and a wall to draw upon. Click for larger images. Prismacolor pen and colored pencils.

You are amazing with those Prismacolor pens and colored pencils.

What a gift, to be able to draw whatever you wish and be able to share your sight with others.

Thank you!

love to you and yours,
Gina

This is a great drawing. Although you are in complete control of the architecture the overall colors and shapes of everything is very loose but powerful.

I love the moody sky.
