San Francisco - CA - USA - Results

Postby eduardo » Mon Nov 05, 2007 1:15 am

Soooo, it turned out that it was SUNNY in San Francisco today! No fog, no cold whatsoever. Really strange, but I was sure glad about that.

Ok so I'll post this here since all others have done the same. I arrived at Peet's at around 10:15 a.m. today. By 11 a.m. I think there were over 12 sketchcrawlers lurking around the hallway. I met up with Mike and Corinne, so we headed out to the actual piers behind the building, and drew there. Then came inside where most of the others were going at it drawing people in the building. Finally we walked out in front where the Market tents, skateboarders, passing trollies and two talented musicians gave more life to the scene.

I was there 'till about 1:30 p.m. so that I could go to Purr-casso (which turned out good, btw), so I'm not sure where everyone else went to, but it was sure fun!

Here are some things I drew today.

Image

First drawing, at 11 a.m. 'Bout 35 mins.

Image

Quick gesture doodle of a lady taking a picture before we left the pier and went inside. 2 mins? Now we go inside and meet the rest of the guys 'n gals by Peet's. I think someone there studies animation. I saw a lot of blue col-erase and red pencil life sketches/drawings. :)

Image

This is in front of the building, facing the market area and its street. Quick 18 min drawing. I like lettin' loose and being "sketchy" sometimes.

Image

Ferry building, started at 12:30 p.m. I guess you could call it more of a front-view elevation. 45 mins (I swear it felt like an eternity.) And that's it, my ass got sore. Mike was smart and brought a chair.

Can't wait for an actual full day session next time. Hope to see more sketches posted!

Wow. I really, really love that last one.

What were you using for paper?

Eduardo:

Fantastic drawings!

My husband and I also sketched at the Ferry Building today, from 11:30 until about 3:00. Never saw any other sketchers, but glad to hear you were nearby. I will scan my sketches tomorrow and hopefully get them posted here soon.

Eduardo, it was great meeting you today. What a great batch of sketches, and the last one being inside of a Cheerios box.... awesome! haha.

I'll scan my not-so-great sketches and put them up tomorrow. It feels a lot later to me right now than 10 so I'm gonna crash for now. I think I've also got a little bit of dehydration going on.... from San Francisco of all places.

Hope to see some other sketches here soon!

Cereal box? Genius! Gotta try that next time. Great work, makes me homesick for The Bay.

Dear eduardo , ...

... inside of cheerio boxes ;-) Whatever it took: I really like you three-colour-style - esp. the harbour works out so vivid!
thanks for sharing, Thorsten (aka PeterPen)

Hahaha.. Cheerios.. I hope you guys had lots of fun in San Fran! I had lots of fun in Sacramento.. It's too bad that the cities are so far away.. I wish I could be at both at the same time.

Cheerios box...LOL! Actually, I prefer Lucky Charms, myself. Of course, the color palette is more restricted--moon yellow, star orange, clover green, and heart pink... :wink:

Those are great images, and the last one of the Ferry Building just blows me away. Fantastic.

Here is a scattering of my images from yesterday. I decided to try some color again, after doing only grey washes for the last several crawls. So in my warmups for the day I was trying to figure out how the watercolor pencils worked (it had been a while).
Image
Then I hiked to Aquatic Park, where I wanted to get a sketch of the Balclutha (sailing ship). To get there, I had to cross an ocean of tourists at Fisherman's Wharf...so that's what the sketch is of in the upper left of the next picture. Upper right is this really cool old lady who was photographing the Saints Peter and Paul church using a camera/lens combo that was bigger than her head! I admired her pluck. Then there were people playing grass volleyball (in November...I love California!), and some dogs frolicking...always fun to draw.
Image
Then here are some sketches done at the pub we ended up at, and on the BART ride home.
Image
And lastly, three watercolors that I did:

Eduardo, that ferry building looks like there is zeppelin approaching, just above it... can feel the drama. Battlestation, ready!
:wink:
