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.

West Side Market Artists

From our outing to the West Side Market, some of the 15 artists that sketched and an exterior sketch.

Since opening to shoppers on November 2, 1912, the West Side Market- Cleveland’s oldest continuously operating municipally owned market, has anchored the historic Ohio City neighborhood. Designed by renowned local architects W. Dominick Benes and Benjamin Hubbell, the grand 241′ x 124′  structure has 44-foot high Guastavino tile vaulted ceiling, and a clock tower, which stands 137′ tall. In 2008, the West Side Market was designated as one of “10 Great Public Places in America,” by the American Planning Association and continues to offer an authentic and culturally diverse shopping experience. The West Side Market celebrated its Centennial in 2012.
