Sketches

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Just on my way back from a short visit to Louisiana, USA. Only one day in Baton Rouge near New Orleans, on business. Luckily I managed to make a few sketches, here is the first of them. I would have liked to draw steamboats on the Mississippi of course, but this roadcrossing near the hotel tells also about the USA. It was made early morning just before breakfast. You have to take an opportunity as it comes.

I know the feeling exactly. I'm in a perfect place for a sketch, but just no time. This is a great sketch. I hope you get more opportunities to sketch while you're there!

Thanks Rob, yes even though it was only a day I had some fine opportunities to sketch.
Bedankt GeertJan, tsja, Amerika en auto's....
Thanks Roel for giving me the opportunity to sketch, to show me around, and giving your views on these little details of living in America.
