My big trip - A few favourites!

October 18, 2010 | Leave your thoughts

I am just about to start to big scanning project (If I do one 120 page book per week it will still take me 8 weeks!) but first here is a random collection of better scans of some of my favourites. Even choosing a FEW favourites is a big job!!
0802M_04 Dekum
The Dekum – A building in Portland – the Monday after the Symposium
0805T_02 KC Museum
Kansas City Museum – A page from my day with Mistress of Longears – because we were having such a wonderful time chatting I only got the loosest of lines done at the time- I added the paint on the plane that afternoon on the way to NYC.
0806F_04 Soho
Soho building – great to sketch in such good company- Shirley of Paper and Threads. This is the first time I attempted a dramatic perspective (inspired by Lapin and Gerard in Portland) – it was so much fun and surprisingly easier than I expected.
0809M_05 Views from the Rock
Views from the top of the Rock NYC
What can I say -the views were somewhat overwhelming and the Empire State building is amazing. It was a hot and humid day and I did these very quickly standing up.
0810T_07 Grand Central
Grand Central Station –
My last evening in NYC – yet another overwhelming NYC experience!
0813F_02 Jenners
Jenners Department Store- Edinburgh
I had SOOOO much fun doing this – was beautiful day, sitting in the sun in a safe position, lots of chats to onlookers and my pen just freely did its own thing – in the groove!
0817T_04 Callanish Stones
Callanish Standing Stones – Lewis. Nothing could be further from NYC! Lovely peaceful afternoon sketching something completely different from anything I had seen on the trip.
0818W_03 Leverburgh Lunch
Leverburgh- South Harris. In fact this is even further from NYC than Lewis. Great fish and chips and tea and view to the even more remote islands of North Uist!
