Sketches of the Summer

Didn’t think I haven’t been sketching did you now? Summer is coming to a close, at least for me, and the following are that work.  I always want to sketch more and more, but it sometimes can be a process more than an hour long, Which is rather difficult standing on a ladder in the dark several feet above the ground.  Anyway, here they are.  Clicking on each sketch will open the full resolution view.
