Blue Friday

While some folks might have been out walking off their turkey dinner, I took my little rowboat and sketchbook out to Swan Island and enjoyed a surprisingly warm morning. No gloves needed to hold the pen!

There is so much to see and sketch there, from a guy making chainsaw art on the beach, to industrial architecture, to the dry docks raising massive ships out of the water (pictured below).

Virtual Sketchcrawl #10 - food prep or aftermath

I'm not cooking ahead for Thanksgiving, but I did have some parsnips and a carrot that needed to get eaten up.  So I decided to roast them.  I laid them out (artistically) and did a quick sketch while cooking some bacon in the preheating oven.

And then, while those were roasting, I opened and cleaned an acorn squash, to bake for later.

Virtual Sketchcrawl #10 - food prep or aftermath

Please join us for our tenth virtual sketchcrawl on Saturday, November 21st.

This month, the suggested theme is food preparation or its aftermath.  Thanksgiving is approaching, and even if we won't be having large gatherings this year, I'm sure that we'll still be cooking.

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!
