Sketch in Beijing 1

After the painting trip. I have been staying with my mother. After my father passed away in June, she has lived alone by herself. I try my best to stay with her as much as I can. Two days ago, she did cataract surgery. Everything went well. I am glad I am here to help her when she could not see well. I have not done any painting, but I had some time to think about sketching. During our painting trip, many artists brought their sketch books and portable water color set. I brought a sketch book as well, but I didn't do much. To be honest with you, I have not done enough sketch at the site, so I didn't have a good way to do it. During this time I am at my mom's place, I turned into my study mode again. I studied Robert S. Oliver's approach on sketches, and figured out a way I can effectively sketch the scene I like. This image I show today are two sketched I did. The upper one is from a photo I took from Zhouzhuang, and the lower one is a copy of Robert S. Oliver's work. I have more to show you next time

I just love pen and ink drawings! These are simple and lovely!
