some sketches from here on earth

Post by ratatouille » Tue Mar 01, 2005 9:52 am

hi! i just stumbled across this forum and this new term for what i've always just called "going sketching" or "sketching on location" LOL. There haven't been many forums on the net yet devoted to just location sketches, so this is pretty cool =)

anyway, here are some of my on location sketches from last year..
(i think i've posted them elsewhere too)

sf in april.. short trip, only had time to do 2 sketches

more dead life =)
no people sketches lately.. my garden attempt came out pretty poorly so i just ended up sketching some of the different stone lanterns they had at the japanese tea garden last wk. it was drizzling the whole time, lighting sucked and was nonexistent, and it was freaking cold - so we left early.

Those laterns still turned out nice :D

i was hoping to do a little sketching in SF this weekend too, but the stupid forecast did say it was suppose to rain until monday. The weather has been good so far...the sun is fighting....but looks like a losing battle... but I'm sure with my luck, it will start pouring once I get to the city. :?

it may be perfectly fine around the bay, but once you get within a few miles of downtown.. it'll be windy, wet, and overcast =)
