Virtual Sketchcrawl #8


Virtual Sketchcrawl #8- Sketching in a Grid

For the time being we are back to our regular sketchcrawls of once a month.

Please join us for our eighth virtual sketchcrawl on Saturday, September 19th

 For this sketchcrawl we suggest you use the device of a grid on your page.

Your grid can be regular or irregular, whichever you prefer. The subject is open as well. You might try; selecting objects within a room (as Vicky Porter did in the illustration); select objects that have some connection to each other; or how about use the grid as frames like in a comic book and tell a story?

Other grid ideas from Barbara Weeks post on the Urbansketchers Chicago blog 

In this sketch page, Vicky Porter first taped off and painted in the grid spaces, then drew objects in a room.

As always, this challenge is optional, and you can be as strict to the subject or as loose as you like. Your participation is welcome whether you choose this challenge or not-- 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!
