Paramus, New Jersey, USA [Results]

Postby mhimeswc » Sun Jan 20, 2013 1:38 am

I've done January sketchcrawls outdoors before, and they are NOT fun! So I did a solo crawl today at the Paramus Park Mall. There were lots of things to sketch, and places to sit while I did it. I managed to do seven sketches, which is probably a record for me.

I started with breakfast at McDonalds.

Then I sketched the people at the table in front of me.

"The Wild Turkey", a sculpture in the food court.

I sat looking at the entrance to Sears for this one. Lands End was having a big sale.

Image
This guy was waiting for his wife. I liked the tree decorated with strings of lights and red and pink ornaments.

Thanks, Joan. I probably would have done more (I was on a roll) but the mall was getting crowded and it was difficult to find a place to sit with a view of some of the things I wanted to sketch. I wished several times that I could sketch standing.

Thanks for looking and commenting, Noemig! Sometimes I sketch alone, and sometimes with my sister Joan. I am jealous of the people who have large groups to sketch with. It looks like so much fun. I can't seem to interest my art friends in doing Sketchcrawls. Maybe I need to get some new friends. LOL!

Great job Mickey! :clap: I can't believe how many sketches you did, and you managed to find a great variety . A little sisterly competition? Good for you being motivated for going solo. :wave:

Hi Mickey! It's good that you moved from one sketch to another. It's too easy to get the inertia that causes a sketch to be overworked! :thumbup: Thanks for checking out our Tallahassee FL results!

Thanks, Susan. No competition. Joan almost always does more sketches than I do, because she's faster. But I'm learning to sketch directly in pen, which keeps me from wasting too much time erasing.

Thanks, Mark. I found more of a variety than I expected, and it was fun doing a quick sketch of each instead of laboring over one or two.

Great reportage from a mall :thumbup: I know there are tempting subjects yet so difficult to find a place to sit, relax, and sketch. Bravo!
