Wrapping up the Previous Sketchbook

After I prepare my new sketchbook for work, I review my last one and finish up any unpainted sketches. Here are the final four pages, done while on break from jury duty a few weeks ago. I did the pen and ink sketches on location, adding a small value sketch and taking a digital photo to glue in later.

I am a comfort sketcher. That means I like working from a nice, shady spot, sitting in a nice chair, preferably with a nice lunch and a glass of ice tea on the way, or perhaps a cigar. This also means that I sometimes don't get much of a choice with regard to my subject. This however, is good, because it forces me to make a sketch rather than just copy what is before me.
