Since I didn't manage to post a single drawing for the last SketchCrawl :oops: , this time I went ahead, and did a few drawings yesterday at the Army Museum. So for super-early starters this time, here are my "pre-results"

I'm off to Les Invalides now. I might post some photos of our day in real-time. In any case, here's the group page for photos and drawings

Une belle journée et beaucoup à dessiner aux Invalides.
J'ai vu de superbes dessins lors du pot final.

Good work some diverse subjects. It must have been an interesting place to draw.

Yes Tracey, the armor ended up being even more fun than I expected. They've got a really amazing collection -- the detail on some of the pieces is absolutely stunning. I'm actually going to go back and do more now :D

Thanks Tim! There is a lot to see and draw! A lot of the Parisian sketchers had either never been, or had visited the place once as a child etc... So many spent the whole morning just touring the place. With the museum collections, the buildings and the surrounding grounds I think there's enough for few SketchCrawls, actually!

Magnifique journée, et je vois que nous sommes beaucoup à avoir été très inspiré.
J'y retournerais, c'est sûr, ça fait d'ailleurs plusieurs mois que j'ai le prospectus des amis du musée de l'armée qui traîne sur mon bureau, il serait peut être temps que je l'envoie... :P

Kim superbe le cheval en blanc sur papier gris ! :clap:

A la prochaine !

Enfin voici mon petit "compte-rendu" : nous étions une bonne quarantaine à se retrouver à l'Hôtel des Invalides pour ce 45ème Worldwide SketchCrawl autour des rdv qui ont été proposés... Avec le temps d'été indien beaucoup des sketchers ont préféré de rester dehors et profiter du soleil, mais pas mal d'autres ont visité le Musée de l'armée et voir son expo "Vu du front", l'église avec ses drapeaux prises à l'ennemi et le tombeau de Napoleon. Pour certains c'était leur premier fois, d'autres ne l'ont pas visité depuis leurs enfance, ça a fait des bonnes découvertes !

On était une bonne vingtaine au 1e rdv à 10:00 -- avec Pierre bien en avance comme d'hab :wink: . D'autres nous ont rejoint à midi. Il y a eu beaucoup de nouveaux sketchers, y compris une sketcher de LA, une autre de Texas et aussi de Strasbourg... c'était une journée pleine des belles rencontres et échanges.

Nous sommes restés au café La Terasse (dernier point de rdv) papoter pendant plusieurs heures, jusqu'à ce que André, qui avait *vraiment* envie de continuer à dessiner, a réussi à inciter les tout derniers sketchers à faire un peu de sketching-by-night. :D

C'était bien difficile pour moi de dessiner sans pouvoir voir ma feuille, mais c'était trop fun -- une expérience à refaire !

André -- désolée d'avoir ranger mes crayons pour du bon, mais il était déjà 21:00. 11 heures de SketchCrawl c'était pas mal (ah oui, et en plus j'ai pris de l'avance pour commencer vendredi, donc une totale de... ??? heures, il a fallu que je rentre !)

En tout cas merci à tous d'être venus, et aussi une grande merci à ceux qui ont/vont partager leurs dessins -- sur ce forum et aussi dans notre groupe Flickr https://www.flickr.com/groups/sketchcrawlparis/

Et bravooooo à tous pour une excellent journée, et surtout pour tous vos dessins :clap: :clap: :clap:

Ok, so for the write-up: we were about 40 sketchers to meet at the Hôtel des Invalides yesterday for the 45th WW SCrawl at the designated times. Lots of new faces, and a sketcher from LA, another from Texas (who lives here now) and a sketchcrawler from Strasbourg as well, so it was great fun meeting everyone, lots to share and new friendships made :thumbup:

Around 20 people were already at the first café at 10:00am, and plenty more showed up by noon. We had some really terrific weather -- 25°C/77°F by the afternoon. So a lot of sketchers stayed outdoors making most of the sun. Others did make it into the museum to sketch from the collection and some even spent the whole morning checking out the really great show they have now "View from the Front" which includes some amazing sketches from the frontlines of WWI, paintings and drawings, etc.

Several people stayed on at our last café stop talking, exchanging tips and talking about art in all its forms. Finally, André who really did not want to stop sketching managed to get the last of us out the door for a little night sketching :D

It was pretty hard drawing when I couldn't really see my paper, but lessons learned, we'll definitely have to do that again!

A big huge thanks to everyone who joined us yesterday, and an extra thanks to those who have/plan to share their drawings here on the forum and on our Flickr page here https://www.flickr.com/groups/sketchcrawlparis/

And hats off to everyone for the wonderful day -- and for all of the great sketches you made! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Cheers!

It was a wonderful day spent at Hôtel des Invalides with the crew from Paris Sketchers and others drawing enthusiasts.

The weather could not have been better. The sun out all day, I took advantage by staying outdoors for all my sketches (see below). In addition, the sketch-at-night-after-drinks idea (last sketch below) turned out to be a fun experience.

Kudos to Kim for organizing yet another excellent sketchcrawl. I'll agree with her: Les Invalides is a site that offers plenty of sketching opportunities. What a delight!
