Driving Across the Country

sketching in the car, K sketching a composite of landscapes inspired by our trip across the countryiphone snapshot, roadtripping 2012,

My daughter K, riding shotgun. She pulled out her sketch book while we were driving through Missouri and sketched a composite landscape; an impression of the landscape we had driven through including Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Tennessee and Virginia.

Landscapes, K's art teacher gave them old books to sketch in - color sketch of landscapes inspired by our trip across the country

Her art teacher last year gave them books that had been withdrawn from the local library to use as sketchbooks. I kind of the like the idea.
