from my bike today

toward Egisholz, DE

October 6, 2011. Here's the view from my bicycle as I ride home from school every day. This is looking towards the village of Egisholz, as I'm riding between Wollbach and Hammerstein. I jumped off my bike to do a quick sketch- not this- then came home and re-sketched it for details. The corn is brown, the canola field there in the middle, and the hillsides are striped with vineyards.

I see autumn is arriving! good sketch, builds up nicely towards the horizon.

In the next few days we will see the full force of color arrive, I believe. Hopefully some dry days will accompany it, as I must get out there to draw it;)

I always enjoy your work Rob, but for me this is your finest. I love the rolling landscape and gentle ink work. Very well done!

Thank you- it's something I want to do more.

Lovely sketches all around! This one especially makes me want to get on my bike and pedal forever...
