Urban Sketching in Avondale, Jacksonville Florida

wk 2 Avondle CHere is my latest urban sketch drawn on location.  Big fun Sunday morning walking my dogs down to our cute neighborhood shopping area. I had brunch outside and worked on this sketch.  I was pleased that the cars parked in front of the shops moved in and out so I could not include them in my drawing.  Way to hard to draw them!  Interested in learning more about sketching on location?  Check out this awesome book.  I enjoy following the author on Facebook too.
