26th World Wide SketchCrawl

So what is the world is a World Wide SketchCrawl? Several times a year groups around the world gather in their home cities to sketch their surroundings and then post the results for others to see.  It happened that today was the 26th such happening as well as my sketch group's monthly meeting day, so we three met at Helvetia Tavern in Washington County to draw the countryside. We drew for and 1 1/2 hours, ate burgers and deep fried onion rings, and then drove down the road to another location to sketch some more. We're wimps, so we sat in the car and drew whatever was in front of us.

My drawing hand is a bit rusty and the first results were a combination of uncertainty and unskilled, but as I got used to the new pen, and then switched to my old tried and true gel pen the drawings and the color mixing improved.

  4. Your sketches give the feel of Spring in Oregon with soft colors, simple lines and beautiful country landscape. They'd make a great basis for larger paintings.
