Joan's 2014 Sketches

I am starting a new thread with my 2014 sketches.

My friend and I started 2014 off right by going to a food court to sketch some people. These were done with my lamy pen with a great brown ink that bleeds.

Re: Joan's 2014 Sketches

This group was done locally after our snowstorm and frigid cold temperatures at the beginning of the month. The lake nearby froze and I sat in my car to sketch some skaters.

Re: Joan's 2014 Sketches

Thanks Doug, Debby, J, Rob, and Kat!!! I appreciate your comments!

The group I am blogging with moved on to sketching San Francisco from Google Maps. Here are my sketches.

My tour begins with the sign at Fisherman's Wharf,
Nick's Lighthouse at the pier,
A streetlamp in Chinatown,
Clayton & Haight Streets ( I was there in the 60s too. lol),
and the San Francisco Art Institute.

Re: Joan's 2014 Sketches

I don't know why some of the images are small and some are big.

The smell of baking bread at Boudin Sourdough on Jefferson St. would definitely get my attention if I were actually there. lol
I have been to Lombard Street, "the crookedest street in the world."
The Trans America Pyramid is interesting as is the top of a building near it.
And then there is a stop at In-N-Out Burger.

Re: Joan's 2014 Sketches

I had to find a view of the Golden Gate. This one is from the Presidio.

If you are in the mood for a tour you can get tickets on Jefferson St.

The first time I was ever in San Francisco I went to Golden Gate Park to the Japanese Garden. I sketched part of it.

No trip to San Francisco is complete without a cable car ride.

And my last SF sketch is one of the "Painted Ladies" on Steiner Street.
