In early March I got to be a passenger along Route 1
So many times I've driven that road, sneaking glances.
So I took the opportunity to sketch! Of course!
Composing sketches while moving quickly is in some ways
like putting together a puzzle.
I grab elements from the landscape as it whips by
and fit them in on the page.
By the time I'm drawing individual parts
they are memory images,
but with actual references in the moving landscape.
I added some colored pencil notations in the car
and later I painted lightly with watercolors.
also come in handy in such fast situations.
