Little Italy: Different Approaches

It's always interesting to me to see how everyone interprets a scene, what kinds of marks they make, what catches their interest, how they 'show the world, one drawing at a time.' Since we are enjoying some rain here in San Diego this weekend, I stayed in and jotted down a few reflections on my different approaches to the sketches I did last Sunday at our meetup in Little Italy. If you are interested, you can read about it at my blog.
 
Enjoy the rain!
