I have not been posting some of my Urban Sketches for a while...I just read the guideline...I should share it on line.  I have been using my mini iPad for my Urban Sketch for a while and I think it is fun and convenient.....the only thing is, sometime I might ran out of "juice" therefore I always brought an extra battery for that purpose.
2 are Cleveland scenes,

one was done at St. Marco Sq, Venice at night during concert, other two were during those long long wait at Serengeti for the Wildebeest Migration.
