Hi all,

This was my first sketch crawl, and I can't wait to do a few more. I didn't start until mid-afternoon, so my selection is a little more limited.

I started at the Radcliffe Camera, and experimented with a new tool -- a Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen. These contain India ink, and present it in the form of a marker pen with a brush-style nib. Took me a little while to get used to it (and to get used to sketching in public -- something I hadn't done since high school). Here are some of my sketches from around the cafe at the Radcliffe:

Image

We moved on to the King's Arms pub for a drink, which was a great venue for further exploring my new artist pen, this time concentrating on portraits (both of fellow artists and other patrons):

Image

Later, we moved onto the Oxford University Natural History Museum, which was brilliant. Loads of dinosaur fossils that were excavated from in and around Oxford. (It was so much fun that I actually spent Easter Monday there again, just checking out the fossils!) This time, I augmented the artist pen with a set of water soluble colours markers, Tombo ABT markers, watered down with a Pentel water pen. Again, this was new territory for me, but I reallt enjoyed the results:

We compared sketches at Border's Starbucks, then went our separate ways. A number of us ended up at the Gardener's Arms in Jericho, where we chatted and sketched for a couple of hours more. I took the opportunity to capture Allen and Christina, two of my fellow Sketch Crawlers:

All-in-all, a fun day!

Allen - These are wonderful ink drawings!! The ones of Bonn Square and the Museum are so detailed. Great job!

Adam - Impressive colection of sketches! You got so many done...and done well. I think the city sketches are my favorite.

JP - Your portraits are excellent! Looks like you had a lot of success with the new media you used. Wonderful job on the dinosaur!
