Inktober Catch Up

I took the day off yesterday.  I can sketch every day with no problem but when I set this goal I forgot how much I hate schedules.  I mean, I can sketch any time, but Inktober calls for an ink sketch every day in October.  Sketching two or more sketches a day is fine  ...   if I don't feel obligated to do it. But when I "have to" do it ... not so fine.  Don't you love complainers?  Enough...

Day 21 - treasure.  Well my family is my treasure. 

Day 22 - ghost.  This is from a photo of the ghost town in Manor.  The church is from my mind.  I'm pretty sure the ghost town is not old, it is a faux ghost town to attract tourists.  They have a hamburger joint and that is about it.  They have special events but the day we went it was really deserted .. so ghost town.

Both sketches are in the big book.  I used a Prismacolor brush pen for the first and the Macron o2 for the writing and the second sketch.  I went for uncomplicated which is normal for me.

Every once in a while a break is needed. I made sure I had a few extra sketches done so when I was off at the wedding I wouldn't get crazy if I missed sketching one day...and I did. lol

Joan, you are a trooper. I am straining to get one sketch a day done. It is a mental thing somehow, an obligation. A false one.
