New Sketch: St Mary’s -Temple, TX

September 8, 2019

I believe I mentioned recently that I’m looking to move to new digs, and one area is up around Temple, TX. I was waiting to meet my realtor a few days ago to view some homes. He was running late, so I walked down to a nearby church and decided to bide my time sketching. I liked all the broad contrasting lines it had.

Here’s another ink drawing of my friend, Bob; this time drinking a Coke and eating pizza. We were watching the NBA finals. Well, he was. I couldn’t talk him into taking off his shades. It’s about 11 x 14″.

I started with a light grey outline sketch using a Prismacolor layout marker, and then added most of the details on his figure with a water brush filled with thin Sumi ink. I took a photo of the couch so I could finish that up later.
