Since winter poses an interesting dilemma for outdoor sketching, here's what happened when my friends came up with the idea to observe advent with one sketch a day until Christmas. And yes many of them accomplished over the lunch hour!
Ponte Sant'Angelo, Rome - Sketch from an old photo, the trip was in spring 2012.
The Pink Building! South facade.
The first digital drawing on the blog - the Advent word of the day was "branch," decided to doodle something with the Cintiq tablet I use at work.
Word of the day was "urban." I was looking for a much grander scale but still satisfied with the quickness of this one.
Another that's not a building! Still a good application of the ink.
