We’ve finally gotten a couple days where we could sketch outdoors and we’ve taken advantage of it. A group of us met to wander the alleyways and do some sketching together and we had a lot of fun doing just that. What alleyways may lack in terms of esthetics, they more than make up for in the form of interesting shape complexes and textures. If only there were fewer stairs to draw (grin).
Every gathering of sketchers has periods where we ignore one another because we’re lost in our sketching but eventually we get hungry and we come together. This day was no exception and we gathered at the local coffee shop for food and to chatter away about pens and paper. Then it was back on the streets, or alleyways in this case, in search of something else to draw.
I decided to sketch a sketcher. Yvan was sketching up a storm when I sat down to sketch him and while I don’t do him justice, he was a cooperative model. All in all, it was a wonderful day. We were teased by those couple days of good weather and I’m looking forward to more of them. Yesterday it snowed.
