San Antonio sketches

Since I moved back to town I've done a lot of sketching in San Antonio. I always sketch on location, and never from photographs, as a way of keeping a visual journal of the places I go and the things I see and I thought I'd share them, if anyone is interested.

Nice work!

How long does it take you to do a sketch? I suspect you draw pretty quick. Nice figure drawing a well.

Hey, really nice work on the Flickr page. Your people look almost real in the thumbnails, yet fittingly artistic when seen full size. Good stuff!

Wow!! These are absolutely incredible! Very detailed. The Vault building looks like it could be an old b&w photo if you sit a few feet away from the screen. Good job once again
