Inktober Day 20 & 21 - Out of Town

I am behind a day even though I scheduled a few posts. I was out of town for the last few days attending my nephew's wedding in Elberton, GA. I flew down with my sister, Mickey on Thursday morning. Of course I did an obligatory sketch at the airport. Even though I added color I am counting this as my Day 20 Inktober sketch.
Since I was carrying on my luggage and planned on not bringing my backpack, I took very little in sketching supplies...a "Pen & Ink" brand sketchbook that is 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, a Hahnemuhle Bamboo Mixed Media pad that is 3.1 x 4.1 inches, my Lamy pen, a few assorted pens and a tiny water brush. The sketchbook paper was very thin and not the best for wet media but I used it anyway.

The wedding itself was Friday night, but I had time in the morning to go out into the square and sketch this view of Begley Mercantile for my Day 21 Inktober sketch. Elberton had some interesting buildings to sketch but being with family that I haven't seen in quite a while kept me from having much free time and on Saturday it rained the entire day. 
More to come tomorrow.

Here are a few photos of the happy couple, Patrick and Cayla.

And a photo of me and my siblings. It has been over 2 years since we were all together.

That's me on the left, my sister, Tina (Maine), my brother, Joe (father of the groom and lives in GA) and my sister, Mickey (from NJ).
