SketchCrawl 10 from Connecticut- Drawings

Postby JanB » Mon Jul 03, 2006 12:50 pm

I was at a paint-out at the Florence Griswold Museum of American Impressionism and took the afternoon to participate in the sketchcrawl.

First my painting set-up...

Then a yummy lunch at Koffee Works......

Finally the Florence Griswold House itself, which was a summer boarding house for artists most notably Childe Hassam, circa 1910....

All are done in a large moleskine sketchbook with uniball vision black pen and Faber-Castell Pitt brush pens. Enjoy!
Joy in the journey.

Hi Jan - glad you were able to participate. I've got some of those brush pens but I think you've got the technique for using them - mine never come out looking this good!

My lunch was Pastrami sandwiches from M&S!

Hi Paintmonster thanks for checking out my sketches!!

Hi Katherine...I had great fun! I feel like I'm painting (my natural element) when I use the brush pens they really seem to suit me.
