Los Angeles [Results]

Postby shihonakaza » Tue Jan 07, 2014 6:58 am

Hey everyone! Where should we go for Los Angeles sketchcrawl? It looks like sunny weather will hold but January sketchcrawls are usually held indoors just in case of rain. How about California Science Center to sketch the Shuttle? Any other ideas?

Hi Shiho,
I am new to Sketchcrawl...the Museum of Science is a great venue! Looking forward to joining the group there or wherever-- at least for the morning! Debbie

Hi everyone,

Let's go to LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) for Los Angeles Sketchcrawl!

This is a good place to sketch buildings and outdoor sculptures, fashionably-dressed art patrons, and see art up close in the galleries.

+optional: we can also choose to walk to either La Brea Tar Pits next door or to Farmer's Market/the Grove (about 1 mile/20 minute walk) afterwards for more sketching, and look at each others' sketches over lunch.

======

I had a great time at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) painting with some fantastic artists. I began painting at approximately 11:00 am. I did these two paintings

Image,

then walked with my wife to Farmer's Market for lunch at 12:30 pm.

After lunch, I returned to do this painting of the site where we originally met under the lamps.

I look forward to painting with these artists again.

I sketched the two massive and iconic outdoor sculptures: "The Rock" (Levitated Mass by Michael Heizer) and "The Lamps" (Urban Lights by Chris Burden).

Thanks for coming out to sketchcrawl, everybody!
