Sorry you can't be here with us Christian but maybe you will lead a gang up state NY for a crawl!

Those look fantastic, Frederick. I especially like the hat stand.

Here are a few of mine. I spent the morning working on architecture and statues:

And in the afternoon, I switched to quick figure sketches:

Just stopping by to enjoy all the great work. That hat stand made me want to try that as a challange some time if I ever come across one.

Thanks for stopping by and mentioning my "hat stand". It was in an open shopping mall setting. Any of those little carts in shopping mall corridors would be a fun challenge to draw. Hats might have been the easiest because they are so big but keys, watches or sunglasses other stuff could be fun too. Good hunting!

Here are 4 of the 7 people who showed up in Washington DC to draw at Union Station.
Joel blue shirt on the left, Robin Meyers in red, Marguerite in orange with the walking stick and Dan Vera the poet and sketch crawl enthusiast on the right.
Many of us posted our photos on our Facebook group page, some don't even know how to use this forum.

We have been doing a daily sketch with some of the other artists in the Sketchcrawl DC group every day this month of July. Lots of pictures to see there.
But it was extra fun to get together and sketch in the old train station and enjoy the powerful air conditioning on a day where the heat was over 100ºF 37ºC plus lots of humidity making it feel even hotter.
Autumn and Spring are the best times to be outside in our city for sketching.
What a wonderful thing this forum and the international sketch crawls are for they bring us all a little closer and make us more confidant that our efforts to draw the world around us are worth while. Thanks Enrico for sharing your inspirational idea and making an international community for us to belong to!

Washington, DC Sketchers

I like that fact you guys are colour-coded - was this pre-arranged? :lol: what colours are the other three going to be when they show in the next photo 8) :wink: :wink:

All great sketches, fantastic statue and the "Hat Stand" is a real stand-out. I bet thousands of people pass this every day and do not really look at it.
I'll just pop over to the facebook page for a look see and check out the others.

Lovely work and interesting photos but I have to agree - the hatstand takes it!
I'll be off now to look at your facebook work.
