Sketches of Summer (2015)

Wayne Gagnon - Sketchbook - motif no 1

Motif #1 (Rockport, MA)
4.25 by 5 inches (approx), in sketchbook
Bic 4-Color Ballpoint pens (Fashion colors & classic)

Note: This building is said to be the most painted building in the United States. I’m not much for tourist havens, but this sketch (and some Sauvignon Blanc) made the outing well worth it.

Wayne Gagnon - Sketchbook - A.Piatt Andrew Bridge

A.Piatt Andrew Bridge (Glocester, MA)
4.25 by 5 inches (approx), in sketchbook
Bic 4-Color Ballpoint pens (Fashion colors & classic)

Note: I acknowledge that I misnamed the bridge in the sketch note. We were sipping wine and noshing on an island with no means of verifying what we presumed to be the bridge’s proper name. Humble apologies to Mr. Andrew.

Wayne Gagnon - Sketchbook - harriman reservoir

Harriman Reservoir (Wilmington, VT)
5 by 4.25 (approx), in sketchbook
Bic 4-Color Ballpoint pens (Fashion colors & classic)

Note: More noshing and sipping on the shore of a body of water.

    Wayne, I absolutely love these. I don’t know if these are very different for you or if I’m just not used to seeing this style, but I really enjoyed them.

      Thank you Sharon. I dabble with ways of being present in the moment. I’ve been doing this 4-Color Ballpoint Pen “En Plein Air” for a couple years now, typically when I’m out on a road trip or on vacation. It slows me down to “stop and [sketch] the roses.”
