Prosperity, PA, USA - [Results]

Post by Leslie F. » Sun Sep 20, 2009 11:38 pm

This is my first SketchCrawl, and since I couldn't find a group near me, I decided to go solo. I did "A Day in the Life ...", starting with the view I see every morning when I wake up, and my sweet golden retriever, Buckley. I'm lucky to live out in the country, and I had fresh-picked red raspberries for breakfast, which I also drew.

I had to go into town and do some errands, so I took the opportunity to sketch a scene that I see several times a week and always think, "Gee, I should sketch that one of these days." So yesterday I did!
Image

Our nearest town is the thriving metropolis :wink: of Waynesburg, PA. Here's a view of the main street.
Image

After supper, I took the dogs for a walk and sketched the view looking back at my house.
Image

Last, but not least, a pretty pot of flowers on the patio.

I did all of the sketches and about half of the painting yesterday, then finished up the rest of the painting today. It was a lot of fun - can't wait for the next event!

You say you're lucky to live out in the country, but it's your sketches that prove it. My favourites are the 'Greene County Barne' and '3pm Waynesburg PA', but they're all charming.

-- Leslie, no comments no further words but a big smile on the face you left on me ;)
Well, I can't: I hope there will be SCrawls after this first one ... and as there will be such nice layouts and mottos, I guess, others would join you soon, too ;)

Great style and perspective (especially the town street scene). Oh to be that good! :shock:

Beautiful sketches of an idyllic day-in-the-life. While I love the social nature of sketchcrawls, I also appreciate the act of going solo - it can be a wonderful meditation. Well done!! :clap:

Small Pennsylvania towns and the surrounding countryside make for some interesting sketches. Nice job on your solo sketchcrawl. You have some excellent sketches there.
