Yesterday, I went down to the river to do some sketching. Maysville is charming little river town. One of it’s distinguishing features is a suspension bridge that connects Kentucky and Ohio.
My first sketch was the view from bank and 6th street. It’s a great view of the town. I decided to do a panoramic drawing, to give a wider view of the place.
My second sketch was the corner by the Rotory Club Park…where the road goes under the train tracks.
I think the theme for today is ‘bridges’
For my final sketch, I crossed the river, and sketched the town from the river park in Aberdeen, Ohio.
You can probably tell that the sun was going down at this point, so I didn’t get to put all the details into this sketch, but the composition is all worked out.
What a great day of sketching! Of course, Maysville is such a pretty town, it’s not possible to get a bad drawing.
I’m going to make a woodcut of at least one of these sketches. Help me decide, and let me know which sketch is your favorite.
