Virtual Sketchcrawl Challenge #3- Change it up- Use a different medium.

Our regular sketchcrawls are once a month, but why not sketch together more often while we're sketching from home?

Please join us for our third virtual sketchcrawl on Saturday, May16th
Encouraged by the very good turnout from our second challenge- Continuous Line we are offering another in the form of using a different medium than the one you usually use.

That is; perhaps using graphite instead of ink or maybe gouache or colored pencil instead of watercolor. You know you have those materials sitting somewhere in your stash that you may have tried sometime but for some reason or another went back to your usual medium. We all  have done that, right?

So we invite you to experiment and try that other meduim but still be limited to sketching in and around our homes during our stay safe isolation.

As always, this challenge is optional, and you can be as strict or as loose as you like. Your participation is welcome whether you choose to take on this challenge -- just make sure to work from life and to include contextual information, so it stays in the realm of "urban sketching"!

We will start at 10am.  At noon, which is when we would normally be meeting up for lunch to share sketchbooks, we'd love to see your sketches online in whichever forum feels comfortable for you:

(1) posting to this blog
(2) emailing to our mailing list
(3) posting in our Facebook group

See you there!
