drawing your sense

Drawing is not following a line on the model, it is drawing your sense of the thing. Robert Henri
Here are offered a few more of my sketchbook drawings from traveling in Mexico. This is not a
travel blog but I do seem to fill up the sketchbook most when I am traveling.
I do love to travel, book me a ticket, 2 hours drive or 24 hours flight away, make me happy.
One of the sights I enjoyed in Mexico, including two extended trips recently to the city of Queretaro, are the street vendors, fruit and flowers especially. Diego Rivera made the flower vendors an iconic sight, but I am also fond of the fruit vendors.

These sketches of a coconut vendor with his jaunty wagon, and a mango seller at night were special to my eyes.
They reminded me of my childhood in the Philippines, fruit is one of my favorite treats. I posted about the Philippines and my recent trip here and here and here. And my love of mangos here.
