I don't think this time was a record, though it was impressive turnout for a January day after a spate of wild weather (subnormal cold, wilder-than-usual wind, blizzards, ice, and then floods last week). I think we had at least 15 this time but there were as many as 24 or 25, I think, when we SketchCrawled at the Pike Place Market in October. Not everybody got into the picture for that one, and I'm not sure everyone was in the picture this time either! It grows, it grows....! It was a great pleasure! A wonderful group of people made amazing drawings that were shared at the Solstice Cafe and that have not (yet! hint hint!!) been posted. Yet. Guy, I must see your giant squirrel up here! and your portrait of Bill, to pair up with his portrait of you.

Here's my sketch of the cherry trees in the quad:
Image.
Beth was drawing from Raitt Hall across the Quad; Bill, Guy, and Edwin from the stairs at the top of the Quad, where I joined them and did a quick one that got rained on, looking down the quad toward Red Square. I could just see the Barnett Newman sculpture "Broken Obelisk," which the sculptor dedicated to the memory of Martin Luther King (its twins are at the Rothko Chapel in Houston and MOMA in NY). He said, “The Obelisk is concerned with life and I hope that I have transformed its tragic content into a glimpse of the sublime.”
Image
Then we went inside to thaw out and the five of us did a "Portrait Party": each drew the person on the right -- at first with some self-deprecating chat and laughter. I made a couple of attempts at drawing Edwin:
Image
Image
When we turned to the left and began a new portrait, very soon our concentration was quiet and powerful: I really felt buoyed up and joyful! I drew Beth drawing --
Image
-- then drew her again: not as beautiful as she really is (my oldest friend!) but I loved drawing her clouds of hair!

Seattle WINS. Fantastic drawings and so diverse. I always love Gabi's urban landscapes, and there are some other great ones there too. Amazing perspective. Love the portraits too! Well done all of you.

Xiaoxuan,

The problem is that those are links to the page that the image is on, rather than to the image itself. I'm not sure Picasa lets you link the images directly, the way flickr does.

I just went to http://picasaweb.google.com/lindyblues. ... 5200430754

From there, I was able to look at all the images. They look great! Glad to see somebody else drew the Inspiration statue! :)

Sketch Pistols, yay for you! Nice work! I think I'm going to have to try pencil (and erase!) next time. You all do such beautiful work!

kumi, thanks for your kind remarks and the link to your Flickr site! I love all your sketches, especially the casual warmth of your coffee shop and the fluid grace of Muko-jima Street.

Better late than never!

Hi everyone, I really enjoyed meeting everyone and being part of my first SketchCrawl. I look forward to the next one! I felt very rusty at first, but started to get my style back a little ways in.
