Daily art report 9 - sketching real places
20 days ago - By Art With a Needle
Bringing you up to date on my daily map project. Earlier I wrote about drawing maps of imaginary places. I'm also using my sketchbook to make maps of real places. Sometimes I print out an actual map and use it as a template; other times I'll look at a real map and draw it by eye.
I may label interesting things that I saw along the way - on this map, I found a penny in the alley and saw two toilets set out at the curb for the junk pickup.
Frequently I'll map my travels of the day, or draw the neighborhoods where I lived as a kid.
Or I'll copy a map of a faraway city or country.
