Sandra's California Roadtrip Sketchbook

Since my mom was moving to California during my Christmas break and I had the opportunity to spend Christmas and New Year with my family, I helped my mom move there. Of course I had my Pentel 70 lb. sketchbook and my Pitt Artist Pens Shades of Gray set with me. These are the sketches I did on the second day of our trip since it was one of the biggest snowstorms I've seen in my entire life on day one of the trip.

Thanks for sharing your road trip! The gray pens look like they do a good job.

Re: Sandra's California Roadtrip Sketchbook

Here is the middle portion of the day 3 sketches.

seejay, I liked using them during the first part of the roadtrip, but during the second part of the trip quickly started running out of colors. Having the 12 pen set or even the little landscape set would have been nice in addition to the shades of gray.

Re: Sandra's California Roadtrip Sketchbook

Great notes and sketches of your road trip. Did you do these while the vehicle was moving?

Re: Sandra's California Roadtrip Sketchbook

OH, so very cool!! A neat record of your trip in pen. . . I wish I had done that when we traveled last Oct. We went though some of the same areas! Ca to PA and back. . . different route each way. Going, we took the I-15 all the way up to Salt Lake and then the 80 all the way across the country so went through lots of your route!

Re: Sandra's California Roadtrip Sketchbook

Thank you for the comments, Debby and Rainy.

Yes, these were done while the vehicle was moving and while I was in passenger seat, directing my dad on the road. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to scan the rest of the trip.

Sandra.

Re: Sandra's California Roadtrip Sketchbook

Welcome, Sandra - glad to see your work here! Quite the challenge to sketch while the car is moving. In 2002, my wife and I rode our motorcycles with some friends across Canada and then back across the US - 9,000 miles in 5 weeks. I didn't do any art back then, but it would have been tough to do on a bike...! I do wish I was sketching then because each evening I could have done some sketching from memory at least. I did keep a journal, though...

Re: Sandra's California Roadtrip Sketchbook

Great idea for a journal! Sketching in a moving car is quite a challenge, but you seem to be doing well. I wish I had thought of doing that years ago when I drove from NY to CA. I'll be back.
