Muscat, Oman RESULTS

Postby travelingsuep » Sat Nov 21, 2009 11:52 am

For this special 25th SketchCrawl, and for my 2nd, here in Oman we were 2 sketchers. We had to crawl on Friday as we work on Saturdays and wanted the opportunity to sketch as much as possible. We started at 9.30am and finished during lunch around 2.30. First a picture of us Muscat SketchCrawlers:
Image
This was taken at the second location of the day. We haven't had a fight... I was sketching a building, whilst Mark sketched a boat and the sea. FYI I don't normally dress like this, but it is a conservative Omani village, and we were there at the time of Friday prayers, so I covered up.

I am posting on behalf of Mark his sketches. Inspired by me, he was using pen for the first time with great results I think.

Finally, we drew over lunch at the marina.

We both agreed, we should have spent more days like this.

Here are my results for the day, I am especially pleased with the first drawing.

Image
I thought I'd do some details:
Image
Me sketching the barnacled anchor
Image
I was using a different sketchbook to normal and discovered it doesn't take watercolour, so this was my only colour sketch of the day.
Image
We both drew this gate
Image

Then we moved on to Harmel a little fishing village. I took lots of photos of the kids playing in the sea and on the beach, and did a couple of quick drawings. Then, settled to draw this old house and following the recent USk theme, I sketched some more power lines.
Image

Finally,I drew these over lunch. A man talking at the next table
Image
and the British Ambassador's residence.
Image

It was a fabulous day drawing, although I was very tired afterwards, I am very happy with the results.
I don't know which country I will be in for the next sketchcrawl, but I am already looking forward to it and I think Mark will continue here in Muscat.

nice sketches...
I particularly like the 1st one you did... very nice effect of cross-hatching there...

Interesting subject matter and nice sketches; I'd love to see them posted larger.
