Sketch Fun without a Pencil

Who needs a pencil and paper when the using the sketch pencil in Picasa is fun and easier than drawing too. Thanks goes to Ludwig of Café Ludwig for giving me this idea after he recently posted a blog on this topic. providing more details on the “how” it’s done.

These shots were taken in the Christiana Mall, DE where we made a stop while heading home from our recent PA road trip.
