Sketching from Photos

11/26/12 Private Reserve Black Velvet ink, Hand Book sketchbook
When it’s too cold or wet to work outside, some sketchers stay indoors and sketch from photographs. It’s not the same as drawing from life, but it’s better than not drawing, and it’s still a good way to work on skills. 
I could have picked one of my own photos from various travels, but the fact is, I’m not a very good photographer, so nothing from my digital collection inspired me. But who says photo sources have to be scenic? I found this magazine photo sufficiently inspiring.
