Driving through Pennsylvania

This weekend we did a quick trip to Pittsburgh to visit the famous Hindu temple in Pittsburgh. It was a beautiful drive through Pennsylvania. The weather was great on Saturday and the views along the route were beautiful with the trees turning to the wonderful fall colors. Here are a couple of sketches from my trip.

Some of them are scenes of the farms that we passed along our drive.

Saint Louis

Another quick weekend trip to visit family. This time to Saint Louis, Missouri. It was a busy weekend and I did not have much time to sketch in Saint Louis. However, I did have a lot of time at the airport due to delayed flights. Getting bored waiting for the unpredictable flight schedule to clear, I did the following quick sketches at the airport. I continued my sketches in the flight as well until I was too tired to continue.

Medium used: Fountain pen and black waterproof ink in a 5 x 8 inch Stillman & Birn sketch book.

Trip to Boston

These are a couple of quick sketches I made during a weekend trip to Boston to visit family. The first sketches is a view of the deck outside as I watched it pour all morning. Later it in the evening, as the weather got better we spent sometime outdoor. I managed to do another quick sketch sitting out on deck.

Luckily, the next day the weather got bright & sunny and we planned a trip to nearby Hopkinton State park! I enjoyed sketching the lively atmosphere by the water.
