After visiting Old Orchard Beach on my way home, I travelled to Newburyport, Massachusetts for a couple of days. The old seaport town is historic and quaint. The first day was drizzly so out came the sketchbook.
I find that spending a half an hour sketching creates a more focused memory than a quick photo.
This first sketch was done from a window seat in a small restaurant where I was having lunch. Pleasant Street is one of the main thoroughfares in the downtown area. Steeples and streetlamps punctuate the scene.
More sketches to follow.
