Helen's Dailies, quick morning sketches

I started early in January, not the first but the first full week, doing a quick morning sketch. The first few were things in my view in the morning but then I began to think about upcoming travels and decided I needed practice in doing scenes quickly. We are traveling with friends so my sketch time will be limited. I got out a few photos from past travels and used them for 10 minute sketches.
If I understand this correctly I'm to put all of my sketches in this thread so here is what I've done so far. You'll see I missed a couple days but that doesn't bother me... it's bound to happen. The first one took a bit longer, that was before I decided to try 10 minutes. This is the first week. I'll post more later. Right now I have to get dressed for work.




This one is in a different sketchbook, trying new gelatos.


This one is from a WDE

Re: Helen's Dailies, quick morning sketches

the rest of January .... I missed a couple days but have pretty much stayed on track.


The next few are the start of practicing capturing scenes quickly while traveling, working from previous trip photos. And there are a couple wde's thrown in....
