Sorry for the delay in posting. I was able to attend my first crawl for a few hours. Beautiful weather.

I have passed that train so many times on the road. Had no idea how huge it was.

Couldn't resist the sculptures on Orange St.

Thank you so much for organizing this, Thor! I can't wait for the next crawl.

Hey Paul,

Great sketches. Its also great you got to meet Don, he is a really good portrait painter. Its a shame I missed the Lake Eola demonstration. I did notice a few people in middle eastern dress but they were just relaxing on the grass and benches when I got there. The next crawl we will arrange a lunch meeting spot as well.

Thanks Tom. Love your watercolors. Glad to hear the demonstration went peacefully. I was great meeting Don. I didn't get to see his sketches, though. Hope he can upload them.

In the spirit of full disclosure, here is the digital sketch that I started at Church Street Station. Before I finished the sketch the battery died on the tablet. The sun was so bright I didn't even notice that I was doing the drawing in a green color.

Thank you, Juny! I love your drawings from the train. So peaceful, and quite a contrast to the beautiful, intense style you exhibit in your drawing of the guardian dog. Fantastic stuff.

You managed to get in a lot of variety in your sketches during the day. Excellent work! And so interesting to see your area.

Terrific sketches, Thomas. I love the one of the rooftops (your perspective is terrific), and I want to take a ride on one of those swan boats.

Mtbrehn - Thanks for the compliment on the color. I just started using watercolor with my sketchbook about 3 months ago. I find adding a few washes can save even a so so sketch.
beth - Thank you. The weather today has finally turned colder, it is cloudy and the temp went down to the low 40s Brrrr.
donnam - Thanks for the compliment on style.
sumacm - Your compliment on a sense of place was heartwarming. I am struggling to find an authentic side of Orlando away from theme park facades.
enrico - Thanks for the compliment on depth, I started using watercolors after seeing a piece by you for the Totoro Project. There is no going back.
Savante- Thank you for compliment on skill.
JoanT - Thanks for compliment on rooftop piece. I found a woman's wallet while doing that sketch and mailed it back yesterday.
cancelliere - Thanks for the compliment.
juny - Thank you.
grannyC - Thank you.
mhimeswc - Thank you, and I am thinking I should rent one of those swans and sketch folks on the shore!
