Georgetown Rowhouse Drawing - Sketchbook


Today during my lunch break I was walking in the neighborhood streets of Georgetown, when I found a great stoop to sit on to sketch. This townhouse was a bright jewel in the sunlight and it just felt right to take time and draw…

What a great sketch! I always admire how artists can look and interpret on paper with such precision and talent. It's frustrating, at least for me, to have a vision or want to draw something and all it comes out are scribbles...lol...

Thanks Isabel, I have found having a sketchbook with me at all times is a wonderful practice. And I am also learning that only 25% of what I sketch is worthy of sharing with others, as most tend to be incomplete thoughts on paper...

I love the sketch. And thanks for saying only 25% is "worthy". I once heard an artist say that all those "incomplete thoughts" and time spent "puttering around the studio" are very important and necessary. I'm thinking 25 is a very good percentage.
thanks for sharing,
