Mammoth Cave



We had a great visit to Mammoth Cave over spring break. The cave is just pretty awesome...with wonderful formations. While we listened to the ranger speak I sketched in one chamber, then when we got home I drew from a couple of snapshots. I am going to have to buckle down and draw lots of people to get a handle on drawing the human figure.

Now that looks like a fun spring break! All the sketches are wonderful! How did you get the postage mark stamp on the journal page, though? And which one are you in the photograph, hmmm???
:-)

What fun!! Your drawings are great, very nicely composed. AND congratulations on your Moleskinerie fame (well deserved)!

What wonderful sketches and photos--perfect for remembering a wonderful vacation! However I am so impressed with your horses! WOW!

Well, Linda...I would be the old one of course!

Isn't the stamp neat?! They sell a little passport book in the national parks..you can get your book stamped at each national park you visit. I just had them stamp my moleskine instead.

Lisa, we should get together soon and do some sketching!

Teri it's a funny thing about the horses. I used to draw horses all the time as a kid and I think I got very familiar with the form. I was suprised when I went to sketch from the photo that those horses weren't all that hard....hmmmmm....maybe all that stuff about the more you draw something is true.......

Hi Draw Daily,
I just happened upon your blog. Thank you very much for sharing your drawings. I'm inspired get back to sketching. I like the self-confident quality of your sketches. I also really like the humility of your writing.

I was fascinated to read that you have a River Styx there. A couple of years ago we were sailing in Greece and we sailed up a narrow little almost creek which the local people said was the River Styx of mythology. I love the combination of drawing and handwriting here.
