We had a great first ever Brighton Sketchcrawl, with eight adults and five children participating.

This is the busy Kensington Street in the North Laine, drawn from Starbucks and coloured with watercolour at home later. Notice the mis-spelling on the digger - I didn't have room for all letters of the word 'contractors'. :crazy:

Image

Everywhere was packed, including the eclectic and wonderful Marwood cafe, seen here. I intend to colour this later, too. I didn't do justice to the massively tall, skinny, blonde waitress in the sailor's hat, sadly.

Image

This is the image I am most pleased with, I think - certainly it stands up best as a pure line drawing. It was almost the last of the day: perhaps I'd loosened up finally by then. It shows readers in Brighton's public library, seen from the balcony above.

Image
Here is a man with very long dreadlocks, beside his pal who is eating takeaway food from the Christmas market that has already sprung up in Jubilee Square.

Image
My very first sketch of the day shows many of our Sketchcrawlers, surrounded by the poor folk who had merely come to the library to have a read!

Myf, that came out beautifully. A fantastic sketch of one of our more chaotic locations for sketching.

Francesca Cacciaru got roped in, travelling all the way from London to produce this bold sketch of our first refreshment break in Starbucks.

I have put some colour in my cafe scene - and it's all gone a bit chaotic. I can see lots of faults with it, but I must say I am still quite fond of it. Good thing it's just meant to be a sketch, or I could go on working on it for weeks... and yeah, I know there's such a thing as overworking.

Participating, sketching, and sharing are merged in this page. I could feel the fun as if I'd been there with you. :clap:
