Sketches from Europe: A view of Delphi


Delphi is still one of my favorite places to visit. I would like to go and spend a few days there. It is so peaceful and beautiful. Here is a sketch looking down on the temple of Apollo from my last visit in February.

Bow Tie Guy of the Day: Rowlet

Rowlet

My youngest son wanted me to draw this because this pokémon has a bow tie. Rowlet is a new starter pokémon from Pokémon Sun game. I have never been into the game, but I could not pass up this wonderful opportunity to spend time with my son drawing.

Sketches from Greece: The Acropolis


These are two sketches from the acropolis. The top is looking up at the entrance to the Acropolis. The other is The Erechtheum. This second visit to the site proved to be more productive drawing wise. My first visit 2 years ago I struggled to draw anything.

Sketches from Greece: The Isle of Hyrda



One the last day of my trip to Italy and Greece we visited the island of Hyrda. It is a beautiful island where no vehicles are allowed. Most people walk or travel by donkey. It was beautiful except for the plethora of cats. These are two of the sketches I was able to make while on the island.

Sketches from Rome: Piazza Navona


Although I have been drawing, I have limited access to my scanner at this point, so I have been unable to scan in new work. I realized, in all my excitement to get out a daily Bow Tie Guy, that I forgot about my sketches from my last trip to Italy and Greece.

Here is my sketch from Piazza Navona. I love drawing in Europe. I love taking my students on these trips and seeing their drawing skills improve.

Although I continually see room for improvement in my drawing skills, I also recognize improvement. I strongly believe it is the quantity of drawing that helps you improve.
