Virtual Sketchcrawl with Continuous Line - Saturday, May 2, 2020

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 second virtual sketchcrawl on Saturday, May 2!

Since we're still limited to sketching in and around our homes, this time we invite sketchers to try a sketching challenge, to get us looking at familiar surroundings in a new way.  We'll be experimenting with a "continuous line" style of contour drawing, as is demonstrated here by Portland Urban Sketcher Andrea Matthews.

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 sketch this way or not -- just make sure to work from life and to include contextual information, so it stays in the realm of "urban sketching"!

For some inspiration, here's Marc Taro Holmes' tutorial on single line sketching  and a Sketchbook Skool studyhall video.

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!
