Panoramas carry on. This is a scene that I used to sketch twice a year, once in January and once in June or July. Then I stopped, because it wasn’t really changing and I was getting bored. I never did a two-page spread, though, so over a lunchtime and a half (the inkwork) and adding colour later on I checked it off the list.
Out of interest, here are some previous versions of the same scene, sketched from roughly the same spot:

Your sketches really ‘invite the viewer in” – it’s easy to imagine oneself standing [ or better still sitting in a folding chair) , enjoying the sunshine and a concentrated draw!

Yes, it’s nice to really ‘explore’ a favourite spot. I’m planning to do this at Old Town, Hebden Bridge, when I’m down there in early summer!
As a musician and photographer, I love the idea of revisiting a piece of music or a scene over the course of time. It eventually forces you to take a different perspective.
I love your sketches, I grew up in Davis so its fun to see all the familiar scenes, it kind of make me miss it. I live in Portland now and am an avid sketcher if you are ever up here it would be fun to sketch with you.
Thanks Philip! I go to Portland sometimes (for the rain and the beer) and sketch with the Portland Urban Sketchers on their sketchcrawls, they are a great group, very friendly folk.
Another great sketch as always, Pete. Thanks for sharing the whole series!
Loving your drawings! Keep ’em coming!
