Vancouver, BC Canada - [Results]

July 23, 2011 - Sketchcrawl 32 Results

As far as I know, there were three sketchers in the Vancouver group today, Carol (sketchalina), Thalia (crazythalia) and Dave (CyberDave - Me). There may be others sketching solo or in other groups, and I hope if there are, that they post their sketches on this forum thread.

Our group started early at 7:15am PDT, or at least I did, if you consider me a group (hmm I am big, but I have never been called a group before .. LOL :roll: :silent: ). From 7:15am until 8:30am, I had lots of critiques by an assortment of homeless folk and binners before they started their work day. Lots of encouragement and soliciation of $$$ :D Our group agreed meeting times were 9:00am at the "Millenium Gate" and 12:00 noon at the "Everything Cafe". Carol and I were into sketching by 9:00 am at the "Gate". We sketched here until 11:30am and then wandered further into Chinatown to make our 12:00 noon checkpoint at the cafe. At noon Thalia joined Carol and I. We sat outside the cafe and sketched various parts of Chinatown from there. We were all worn out by 2:30pm (I think the English term is "nackered").

Here are my two sketch contributions so far:

Vancouver Millenium Gate - as seen from West Pender and Taylor Streets
(The mural on the side of the building is the "Century Winds of Change Mural")

Bicycle and Visitors in Chinatown - approximately 75 East Pender Street.

Sketches from Carol and Thalia to follow.

Cheers
Dave

A little bit surprised that the turn-out for a SketchCrawl in Vancouver isn't larger. It's always good to see Vancouver again.
What was the weather like on the day?

Look forward to seeing the others' sketches as well, if possible.

Late post...

After Carol and Thalia had finished sketching for the day, I continued solo for an hour or so while waiting for my Taxi. After checking out the Chinatown Zodiac Mosaics in front of Dr Sun Yat-Sen Gardens and finding no shade, I toodled back to Taylor and West Pender for a shady spot. Here I did some quick and rough sketches in pencil of people passing by. Last night and later this morning, I finished the sketches and inked them in. The initial pencil was pretty rough as I was tired and these folk were too fast for me.

gynp..The weather was excellent at 25 degrees C, sunny and NOT humid :shh: - Sunday is much the same. We finally have started summer - :eh:

I believe Carol and Thalia will post later once they scan their sketches. I anxiously await their entries, as I know they will be great works. :thumbup:

Cheers
Dave

Great depiction of each details of Vancouver Millenium Gate! Love the leaning bike against pole and those characteristic couple. And the pedestrian drawing is so convincing.
