Will you see the back of people's heads every week for the rest of High School football season? It could happen. Our seats are kind of high up so getting any real detail of field action is not easy. Yes, we have season tickets to high school football. Do people in other places do that? I'm a little shy to go sketch under the stands. That seems to be where the real action is, at least if you are a kid or young teen. Anyway, seems when I am a captive audience at the game is almost my only sketching time lately.
REMINDER: World Wide SketchCrawl, Saturday, Oct. 13 Houston group is meeting downtown at Discovery Green 10 a.m. at the Lake House Waterside Cafe.

Lucky for us as the home team we sit with our backs to the setting sun. The visitors, which this week, were a see of red facing straight into the sunset. Last week our visitors filled maybe 25% of the other stands, this week a big cheering crowd with a good band. It did make the game more fun.
Square sketchbook, Sailor fountain pen, and watercolor with waterbrush.

How much do you really know about the area closest to home? What was your city or town like before the urban development? Or the suburban sprawl? What was there 50, 100, or 50 million years ago? And can you still find any artifacts of those times?
This week I talk about getting to know (and sketch) areas that may be as close as your own back yard.
