It’s a little busy here this week so I thought I’d post some old sketches. This sketch (below) is another from the bicycling tour I took a few decades ago. I quote myself here, from an earlier posting:
Many moons ago (1986…), I used to do a LOT of bicycle touring. The kind where you carried all your gear with you (”self-contained” is what they call it). In this instance it was 1986, early June, and I was doing a short week-long tour in the Texas Hill Country with a gal pal of mine. The first day off we took a road that wasn’t accurately marked on our map as being a dead-end so, it being too late in the day for us to back-track, we ended up pitching camp in a vacant shooting range north of San Antonio called Kreutzberg Hall.
It must have rained that late afternoon, given the scene I sketched. My notes say, “Yucky weather brings us to a ‘quaint’ ‘lil place to spend the night”. I guess we waited out the rain and then pitched our tents. I really liked to use the splatter brush back then! And I drew myself with a huuuge nose. Nice of me. : )
