We sat in the car by the Indian River as Isaias was trekking north. I sketched this to the patter of raindrops and to “Fluffy” the comedian, being totally snarky about his show in Delhi.
This sketch was the final sketch for this sketchbook. It was a humid day and we found a shady pavilion on the East side of the causeway. I saw this Jeep in front of me with an open hatch and sketched it. They had a lot of stuff in that car. The trash can blocked part of my view so I was like “what the heck?, why not?” And added it. The family was actually to the left and I could have fudged it by adding them but I liked the “mystery” of the hatch being open and unattended. They were parked under the causeway which is why there is a shadow there. Our car was in the shade as well, a few spots to the left.
This is just one sketchbook that I used while in Florida. My goal was to finish this one and I did. I have two more sketchbooks with sketches in them from my time in Florida and I will be posting some sketches from them as well.
While we were in south Florida, we visited with my sister and her family. She and her husband had gotten a new boat and invited us to come out for a ride. We stopped at a sandbar and I sketched this while sitting on the front of the boat. There were storms around us but it wasn’t raining where we were. Later the storms moved out and it cooled a bit. Overall it was a nice day spent with family.
