Rockville, Indiana

I'm trying to get in the habit of drawing, sketching everyday. Doesn't matter if it's on location or from a photo or from the deep recesses of my mind. The idea here is to DRAW. So today I did. This is from a photo of mine taken several years ago. We were on a trip to Cincinnatti and taking the long way around. From this depot we went out across the Indiana countryside to look at old covered bridges. Found several in various states of repair.

These two sketches are from late 2009. For some reason I never got around to posting them. Haven't been sketching much for a while now. Been working on the house and it consumes me. Hopefully that will change soon. The top sketch is looking out across the campus of Michigan State University. Don't know what the building is but the grid looking object is the roof of the greenhouses. The bottom sketch is of the crossing gate for Canadian National Railroad at Swartz Creek, Michigan done while waiting for a train one day last fall.
