November 2023 Sketchbook

 I tried taking up the sketchbook habit again in November, here are some of the highlights.

sketch truck pen ink sketchbook

This is an abandoned circa 1950 Ford tank truck I found in Spring City, Utah.  I used a fine liner pen, a black brush pen and diluted India ink in a water brush to make this one.

This is a mid 1950's Pontiac two door sedan largely stripped of it's useful parts that I found in a wrecking yard in Grantsville, Utah that I sketched using the same materials as the 1950 Ford truck.  Unfortunately this cool old wrecking yard no longer exists.

From the same Grantsville wrecking yard, this is a late 1950's classic car of unknown make though it does appear to be possibly a Ford or Mercury, almost.  For this one I used water soluble ink in a nib pen and brush and three colors of watercolor, burnt sienna, paynes gray and yellow ochre

sketch sketchbook abandoned truck watercolor

This is an abandoned 1958 Ford stepside pickup I found somewhere in Cache County, Utah. I used fine liner pens and a black brush pen and watercolor for this sketch.  I used a special technique for the rock on the right, once the watercolor went from wet to just damp I dragged an old credit card through it to make the lighter areas.
