I'm glad they bring pleasure to others. It's a hobby for me which I enjoy because it makes me look at things more closely. And a good way to fill some of the time each day after I arrived at an albergue and before the evening meal. And of course to have a more personal visual record of my Camino journey.
I paint and draw outdoors from life as well. I think what you said is the key thing that most people don’t realize.When you’re drawing a subject from life, you’re really studying it, in a way that almost no one else ever does. Nice sketches!
