Door County Sketches

This past weekend I enjoyed a quick trip up to Door County with Dad and Connie. The only mar on the weekend was a cold in my nose. still a very nice trip.


I did a bit of doodling in my Moleskine on the drive up. It was cumulative—a silo here, a tree there.


Dad and Connie went to buy some groceries, and I hung out at the cottage enjoying a little time to sketch the fireplace. Later in the evening, the fireplace was put to good use while the snow fell in the silent woods around us.


A small sketchy still life of items on the mantel.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi.
I like the farm-y sketch especially, and your mention (admission?) of "cumulative doodling"
Why not? Here's some of mine done that way (on a road trip), and then the individual "cumulative doodles" combined in a "cumulative layout" that felt much more satisfying to me than any of it's parts:

[I guess you'd have to copy and paste that link, since I see it doesn't become active (in the preview here anyway)]

And no, I was NOT driving while I did these doodles.

Happy New Year!
