We have had lots of outings, sketchcrawls, if you will, most of them on Saturdays. For each we have had everwhere from a dozen people to one person participate. Today was a one person day so not a great inauguration for our first ever, "Third Saturday Sketchcrawl," but hey, it's
off the ground anyway.
We decided to go with just one Saturday a month for those who can't join us on the "Casual Friday Sketchcrawls." We still have hope that one day we will have droves of Tri-City folks interested in drawing, sketching, painting, art will join us because the sketchcrawls, whether Friday or Saturday, are fun; we all have new friends because of it; our skills continue to improve; and we belong to the world-wide phenomenon of Urban Sketchers.
Here are two sketches done today by Jim Bumgarner.
|While waiting to see if anyone else would participate, I sketched |
some of the cars in the parking lot at the 509 Artspace.
|After leaving the Artspace, I drove over to the Starbucks near Gold's Gym and found |
a couple of ladies having a nice lattee. My plan here was to
capture them as my mentor, Jim Richards would.
