Jennifer Starts out this SketchCrawl with 3 nice little sketches.....plants, rock and roll and baby geese. FANTASTIC!

Aaron is up next with some nice watercolor/gouache sketches.....a mixture of orga/mecha. Beautiful!

Heather our new participant enters into the fold with this lovely sketch of the old Ainsworth house, dabbling with a bit of ink and finishing off with a beautiful sketch of a plant......Well Done!

Hannah, also another new participant, and youngest member of the group, did this nice little ink sketch of a horse and farm. Way to go Hannah!

Jake stepped up to the SketchCrawl scene and cranked out a nice little bit of work......ANIMAL!

Finally I was able to work up a series of gouache/watercolor sketches, ranging from the cold bitter chill of outside....to the warm indoor arena of the coffee shop.

That's some impressive stuff you made there! I love the chilly desaturated colors from the outdoor sketches.

Thanks Peter and Joris! We did get a little skiff of snow this morning, but it did melt away pretty quickly. Everybody started outside today, but people got too cold pretty quickly and we had to move indoors. For some reason it is always freezing when we do SketchCrawl......I guess we will take what we get.

Thanks Paint Monster! It is amazing how everyone can paint the same scene and come up with something completely different. I suppose that is one of the things that makes art so great........we get sort of a peak on how others perceive the world.

zupzup--
I would use gouache more often if I could remember how to spell it. You did a great job on those pieces!

Thank you soooo much Marcello, John and Christina!.....it was so inspiring and helpful to be able to feed off the energy of the rest of the group, and in turn hopefully inspire them as well.
