Minneapolis Trip





pen on paper (click to enlarge)

                             I'm back from my trip and here are a few sketches from those flights.  I have a few photo images I need to go through to see if they can be used for some paintings.  Minneapolis is amazing!  My friend also has a large collection of Pakistani art too so that was interesting!  Glad I'm back though.

i used to sketch people at borders. i would follow them around till i was done then give it to them. i was amazingly nervous to approach them, but then u feel great when they smile at u and thank you like u gave em a gift.

From the second sketch it looks like the pilot driving your plain was sleeping ;)...jokes apart.. your sketches are really good..
As far as my sketches are concerned i don't know why i am afraid from colors(might be it's bcz i think i dun hav a gr8 knowledge of using colors), but soon now i'll start tring to color things up with help of pencil colors.. BTW u r talkin about some pakistani art.. Can't we see them? ;)

Welcome home!

Dean Grey said...

Yay! I love seeing other artist's sketches!

You did a nice job laying in those little touches, Sheila.

The facial hair on the first sketch and the buttons/flaps on the man's shirt in the second one.

Even the plaid pattern of the bottom sketch was well done.

Hee hee hee.....I do wonder if any of these passengers knew they were being drawn!

Ha! I think all of our sketchbooks are full of these airport/plane/train sketches! This is fun!
