I posted the majority of my vacation sketches done of Los Osos Oaks here. This follow-up post are the few other sketches I did on my trip. I meant to sketch more in town… but ended up out at the Oak Reserve most of the time instead. These are the sketches that I think turned out fairly well. They’re in chronological order. They’re mostly from Sketchbook No. 61, which I am still working on.
I did the above sketch on the train out. I showed it to the woman, and she said “that’s rad!” She was really cute, seemed very young, I am guessing probably a UCSB student. I was glad she wasn’t creeped out.
At Santa Barbara, the trip connected to an Amtrak bus, where I used a brush pen (somewhat unusual for me) to draw this passenger:
I showed it to him and he didn’t seem all that impressed.
I did a few sketches at the start and end of San Luis Obispo County Bicycle Coalition‘s excellent Kidical Mass ride:

The sky and clouds turned out well… but they’re so light that they didn’t scan all that well. Though I fiddled with it, I am really hopeless trying to manipulate anything in photoshop… oh well.
Then I drew a bunch of oak trees.
Then here’s another Amtrak train sketch on the way home:
