El Volado, The Mexican Bus

El Volado, The Mexican Bus, ink & watercolor, 8x11
There's a non-residential street a couple blocks from my house where this bus and its two colorful sisters are often parked. I sat on the corner and sketched my favorite, named "El Volado, The Mexican Bus" (as is written on the bus) on the first page of my giant Moleskine. I did a little preliminary work in pencil to get the basic dimensions and then continued in ink and watercolor.

A neighbor I'd never met stopped and chatted. She and her partner are also artists so it was fun to get to know her and her cute dog. But by the time I finished it was starting to get dark so I added the watercolor at home.
