Think Globally, Drink (and Draw!) Locally

Big thanks to Lori for setting up a wonderful sketch outing at Hale's Brewery. I identified with their motto immediately!

Just like in previous months, I continued my exploration of pencil as a change of pace from my pen and ink drawings for the newspaper. Even with the pencil, I fall into the habit of focusing on lines, not tones, but the exercise is worth it. It helps me think in terms of what's dark, what's light and how areas of the composition relate to each other.

Here are all the drawings I harvested:







  1. Great sketches Gabi. Amazing how many sketches you were able to do in that short amount of time.Really captured the space and people.

  2. all about sketching and catching the moment(s).
