Sketching with My Seatbelt On

We drove north on I-5 from San Diego and as we left the LA area behind I began to sketch. Live sketching in the car while the scenery flies past is invigorating, especially as you descend along the Grapevine. You have to work rapidly, accept input from the bumps on the road and make adjustments to the composition as you go along.

All three of these sketches are pastel and gouache on black paper.
