SketchCrawl

Over the Back Fence, 7 x 5.5


Garden Shop Lineup, 6 x 9

Loading Time at the Garden Shop, 8 x 8

Today our Plein Air Austin group joined an international drawing marathon - the 21st SketchCrawl (to be exact with the title.) The idea is that artists all over the world go out on the same day and sketch... and crawl... and sketch some more (kind of like the English pub crawl idea.) I did these drawings at The Great Outdoors Nursery, a very cool garden shop here in Austin. It was so much fun! Thanks Kate, for organizing us!

Thanks Laurel! I don't know if I'd have gone out and dedicated the time to this if it weren't for the group - so glad we were able to make it a PAA thing. You helped me a ton. Next time, hopefully it'll be warmer and I won't have an ear problem so will be more sociable!

Hi Laurel,

That's a cool idea, and I like your
sketches a lot.

It is far too cold here to sketch anywhere but inside, but the idea is
tempting.

Take care,

Barbara
