Sketches While She Works – Honeymoon Gleanings from the Middle East

Petra Treasure House photobombed – My Lady had a 1-week contract in Qatar. We book-ended it with a week of travel in Jordan in the beginning, and a weekend in the Shangri-La resort in Oman at the end. This was our honeymoon. We had a lovely time.

Unfortunately, she has to pay the bills so I had some spare time in hotels while she worked on presentations or actually was on site. I got a few concept sketches done, my own form of productivity in such a setting. Here are quick iPhone snaps of some pages in my 8-1/2″x11″ black hardcover sketchbook. We spent much of our time being tourists or in transit. I wasn’t interested in documenting with my pencil (my cameras did that) so my sketchbook took on a different task.
