215. A friend just moved. Did a tiny sketch of their new place.

214. City study. Gouache and watercolor. 3"x9". You can see the work in progress version in my last post.

Lately, I've been struggling to work out how to draw cities, or how to make "city-like" marks. Eventually, I settled on kind of starting with the vegetation.

211. MGB front muffler, and clamp. Tomorrow I should continue the theme of drawings of boring car parts and draw the manifold, but I would need to take it off the car, and that isn't happening so you are all spared. Ink and watercolor.

210. Rear muffler. Watercolor & ink. I drive what certain of my friends might call a "lame guy car," which in this case means an MGB always in some state of disrepair. The exhaust line started to have issues a few years ago, and after the muffler came apart on the drive home from a trail last month, it finally became time to replace the jury-rigged mess down there with new parts and a proper repair.

198-200 Three small sky studies. 1.5" by 8.5". Drawing clouds while listening to Cloudbursting, by Kate Bush.

197. Pleistocene art study. The idea was to draw prehistoric people in the style that prehistoric people drew themselves. I made it through a page of sketches before I realized that most cave art drawings of people are actually much too recent. There are lots of pretty animals, though. (like you can find mammoths drawn by people who actually saw mammoths! How cool is that?).

193. Pan, moon of Saturn. Pan orbits in the Encke gap of Saturn's rings, and it has an equatorial ridge probably made of ring material.
