Sketchcrawl in S.F.
For the first time in a long time I attended a Sketchcrawl -- the 31st. A sketchcrawl is a drawing marathon and open to anyone who wants to draw or sketch or paint in the company of others for most of the day. These "crawls" take place in cities and towns all over the world. I joined a group in San Francisco and we walked and sketched and painted our way around the Mission District. Happily I even met up with a couple of members from the Tuesday Night Sketch Group. I brought my pens, pencils and watercolors along for the ride. I hung out for most of the day at Dolores Park. My sketchcrawl began with a quick sketch on the BART train and ended with the pencil drawing of a wonderful tree that beckoned me. I enjoy drawing trees -- they don't move around like people or animals!
