Sketching over Greenland at 578 mph and meeting a sketcher
On our way to Spain I did this sketch of another sketcher on board. She was drawing nice compositions of planets with a blue Micron pen, which instantly caught my eye because I use the same type of pens.
A few hours later, when light was starting to peak through the windows and they were about to serve breakfast I told her I had been sketching her while she drew. I also handed her my sketchbook. She liked my drawing and even showed it to her mom, who was sitting next to her. It's a good sign when people want to share your drawing with others. It means they like it.
I then introduced myself and she did the same. Her name is Cristina and she's an art student in Seattle. I gave her my business card with the URLs of my blog and the Urban Sketchers blog written on the back, suggesting also that she joins our Flickr group.
After we landed in Amsterdam we said goodbye. Cristina and her mom went on to catch a flight to Prague and we went on to catch ours to Barcelona.
