Thanks to all you intrepid sketchers braving this cold but at least it was dry day. I did both my sketches with gloves on. Brush pen, water brush with grey ink, and grey Cocoiro pen (the fine tip pen on here.)
I was a little less social at the sketchcrawl today than normal; my friend Katy and I had established a rambunctious toddler kingdom in the corner with all the books and toys and had our hands full with steamed milk, cookies, and Fox in Socks. So my apologies for not chiming in on the formal introductions! The sketching I did manage to do in the cafe included the assistance of a very dedicated 2-year-old colorist.
When we moved outside to the park, it was crazy cold but also there were a lot of things for the littles to do in the playground, so some unassisted sketches managed to sneak onto the page. Nothing very fancy, but a nice reminder of how beautiful fall is, how decadent it can be to erase lines drawn in pencil, and how warm gloves are totally crucial part of the sketching kit this time of year.
A very happy Thanksgiving to you all! I am so thankful to be a part of this group, even when life gets nutty and I don't always attend.
Let's gather at Mt. Scott Park to sketch those giant fir trees. It's actually supposed to be sunny. I'm changing the date to Sunday because I have a work event scheduled for Saturday.
You can use sketches for a holiday cards. I've looked into Moo. They do greeting cards for $1.60 each and you can use a variety of images.
10:00am - Meet at Arleta Bakery Cafe, 5513 SE 72nd Ave, for snacks, coffee, and introductions. 10:30am - Sketch the park. 12:00noon - OPTIONAL sketchbook sharing and lunch at Portland Mercado, 7238 SE Foster Road.
Tentative plans for next Sketch Event onSaturday, Dec. 12 - we will learn about sketching on an iPad.
In January we'll get back to our regular 3rd Saturday sketch crawls.
