Camping Trip

My family and I went on a camping trip to Warren Dunes in Michigan this past weekend. We had a lot of fun. I didn't do any plein air painting, but I did take my sketchbook along. It was very challenging to draw people and boats in motion. It forced me to draw from memory at times because the subject would move or go away all together.


  1. These are very good drawings! And great mementos of those special times! I had my first live figure-drawing session yesterday... and it was kind of stressful and challenging to capture what you wanted in a short amount of time. You do it so well!
    I also like the horse and rider piece below! Wow! It's amazing!

    1. Thank you Katherine!

      Yes it is so challenging. It's kind of relaxing with the sketchbook though. No pressure to even finish it. It would be just as cool half finished.

      Your pencil work is just amazing! I enjoy looking at your wonderful portraits.

  2. Excellent sketches, Brad! Wonderful practice!
