Enrico - beautiful beautiful colors, and it looks like one of many...?

Othbot - the brown/sepia brush sketches are beautiful... kind of the feel of being out on a lawn with the sun so bright you can only see shadows. :)

Rebecca - amazing brushwork! The pond, and trees have great texture. Did you go back in with white at all, or just paint watercolor layers?

IR - I like the bike messenger, skinny as a rail... and the lion!

Hope the rest of you post your sketches!

Thanks, Emma.
No white on these -- the paper is rough, so I fast dragged the brush to hit the top bits, only. I did this several times over with more concentrated paint to get the darker rough spots.

Thanks, all, for the nice compliments!

Let's see more of the SF sketches, please?

wow, so many great sketches and watercolors !! Thank you all for sharing !!
it was a really chill and fun day ...
makes me think we should try and cover less ground with these crawls ... focus more on a certain area ... maybe we should try that for the next one ...
I could certainly just spend a whole day in chinatown ...

anyway ... thank you SFcrawlers ... great job.

Here are mine. You can't really see much of the sf jug band festival from this angle (they're there, performing behind the potted tree) so you'll just have to imagine the strains of "richland women blues" filling the plaza here.
Image
Here are three views from the observation tower of the museum. You can see the poster counter doing a brisk trade in satellite maps at the top, Justin sketching the landscape in the middle, and, at the bottom, this kid who pressed himself up to the glass and whose mother pulled him away as soon as I'd started sketching him, only to appear over my shoulder asking if they could watch me draw. When I said that, actually, I was just starting to draw the kid, the mother made him go back to the glass for another minute. Thanks!

the 2:00 regrouping at the japanese tea garden. Some of the other sketchers and a sort of floating world.
Image
And last, aftrer a long lunch, a view of the great dry fountain on the plaza with the museum tower behind, past the trees. If this opened out one more page to the right, you'd be able to see Rebecca sketching me. At the far left, the group is starting to gather to show sketchbooks. So I got up and joined them.

A fine day out!

Hi All!
It was my first sketchcrawl and I had a blast! It was so inspiring to see everybody's work at the end of the day and the inspiration continues here. I had promised myself that I would post, so here I am, over a month after the fact :roll:

Thanks, seeker!

I wish I could see more of the stuff online that I saw that day in the park. But I can understand the barriers to posting too. I thought I had done everything right and could see my images, then I found out that they wouldn't display on the Mac, and it was just my images that wouldn't display. I could see everybody else's images fine. And then today I found out that my images were broken on the PC too! It seems like the picasa webalbum links don't work here, but the weird thing is that they were working for a day or so. So I had to place them in another location and fix the links. Hope that sticks :?

Looking forward to the next one...
