Sketchy on the Detail

Draw a little every day

Y2D188 and news flash

My friend, her father and I drove into town to watch the steam train excursion (operated by Norfolk Southern Corp, Watauga Valley Railroad Historical Society & Museum and Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum) as it passed on its way from Bristol to Bull’s Gap. While we were there I noticed the local reporter arrive for (what I assume is) a human interest story and then leave when the train did, but didn’t think much of it – too busy taking photos. However, the reporter came back when we were one of the last people to leave the car park. He asked me if I minded answering a few questions but I quickly directed him to my friend and her dad, being locals they would be better equipped to answer questions. Plus I could then sketch the interview and I have not drawn people from life for ages….

Long story short, my friend’s dad made it onto the evening news. You can read the story here.

Y2D187 and mini road trip

Today (that is, Saturday) we drove a few hours across Tennessee to have fun at Dollywood, a theme park owned (as the name suggests) by Dolly Parton. We had great fun in the sun trying new rides, watching shows from the Festival of Nations and going on the park’s steam train. On the way to Dollywood you often see farms that have these red barns and silver silos. I like the architecture of them, whether they are approaching ruin or beautifully maintained.

Y2D186 and late nights

Oops, didn’t make time during the day so it’s back to Pinterest to practice more simplifying photos to line drawings just before going to sleep.
