It looked like it was going to be a beautiful day today, so I decided to do a mini-crawl in Davis. Sketching on your own turf is strange because you pass the same things on your way to work every day and end up tuning out buildings, trees, cars, people – they’re interesting, but you just see them too much for it to even occur to you to sketch them.
I ended up somehow at the Sacramento Zoo, too – but it started pouring so that turned out to be a very short trip. I say that just so nobody thinks there are zebras running around a college town (although there was a bandaged-up goat).
Great sketches Emma … thanks for contributing … is the tree done in watercolors?
Emma, very beautiful ! Looks like a very soft marker in the third, Enrico?
I like every sketch you posted emma, including the ones back in your blog. I miss the Sacramento Zoo.
Thanks guys! Yeah, the first drawing of the tree is in watercolor – on the goats I cheated and threw some color on in Photoshop, because the bandages didn’t stand out from the goat’s face enough.
The zebra is perfect! Beautiful sketches!!
Love your zebra! A zoo visit…what a nice idea!
How can my friend and I get involved in the next sketchcrawl? Is there a mailing list? I used to sketch with a group in LA ( http://www.sketchbooksessions.com/ ) and I’ve been missing it ever since I moved to the bay area.
Welcome to the Bay Area Danny. We are currently trying to set a date in April for Sketchcrawl # 9 – San Francisco. Here’s a direct link to most of the suggestions for times and places…feel free to make any recommendations.
