Location drawing

I created these two sketches just before I took a month-long on-line drawing class.  My sketching took a downturn after the class!  Guess that happens sometimes.
We spent a couple of days in Seattle. While my husband was at a concert, I had dinner at Pizza restaurant and sketched the scene outside. The monorail came by every 10 or 15 minutes.
The second drawing is at a company softball game with a brush pen (permanent ink) and water color pencils.  My husband had so much fun for the first couple of games, then he pulled his calf muscle and was out the rest of the season.

My mom

This is the first and last drawing of my mom.

The one on the left was the warm up.  The one on the right actually caught her, I think. I drew this while she was talking to my sister at the nursing home.  I didn't want to draw her when I was alone with her. I felt like I needed to give her my full attention.
She broke her hip on May 13, 2015 and they discovered cancer throughout her body. She passed away on June 17.
