Atlanta, GA USA [RESULTS]

Postby debora » Sat Jan 19, 2013 11:03 pm

Four of us met at the Martin Luther King Historic Site for the Atlanta sketchcrawl. I came early and had to leave early, so I suppose it's appropriate that I post first. Yet again, I didn't get a chance to watch Erling use his homemade oil sketch kit. Looking forward to seeing here what everyone else did after I left, as well as the beautiful work they did in the morning. Temperature 36°F when I arrived and about 55°F when I left.

Here are two views of the old Ebenezer Baptist Church building. This is the church where King grew up and served as co-pastor with his father. In the foreground of the second picture is a statue of Kunta Kinte (from Alex Haley's Roots) holding baby Kizzy in a ritual that must have inspired the makers of Lion King.

4 sketchers met at MLK memorial in the old fourth ward in Atlanta. There was a talk in the Ebenizer Babtist church with some children of the leaders of the civil rights movement including dr. King's daughter. A few of us sketched some of the attendees. I was planning to do some oil painting but it didn't work out. I did sketch some fellow subway riders on the way home.

Will, I don't remember exactly how many you did, but I thought you did more than that, so don't hold anything back because they were beautiful. And tell Anna that she is required to post hers. She got a good view of the scene inside the church, showing the architecture and the audience, and hers sums up the events of the day best of all.

Erling, I see the next crawl is April 13. How about doing a seasonal topic again, the IRS service center in Chamblee? (JUST KIDDING!!!! - though Buford Hwy is a great place to get lunch!)
