From the Footbridge

I tend to do most of my urban sketching when we travel. Since the pandemic makes it hard to go very far, I decided to look at photos from past trips for inspiration. In June of last year we went to Ogungquit, Maine to be by the water and enjoy a short getaway. One of the photos I took was of a small snack bar and surrounding buildings near the footbridge in Perkins Cove. Using that as a reference, I did this drawing with a #3 Micron Pen and watercolors using a 3/4 inch flat and a #8 round travel brush. It was done in a 5″ x 8″ Pentalic watercolor journal.

  1. Very nice, Jeff. I really like your urban sketches. The red façade on the snack bar really makes it stand out.

    1. Thanks Laureen. Very nice to hear from you. I’m so glad you like the drawing. I’ve been so preoccupied with my abstracts that I haven’t done much urban sketching. It was good to do at least this one to keep in practice. Be well and stay safe in these troubled times.
