Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

The other night a local restaurant hosted a "Sideshow Burlesque Sketch" event. About 52 people attended and we sketched two models. The woman is a burlesque dancer and the guy works for a carnival-like amusement park. They started with 1, then 5, then 10 minute poses leading up to some 20 minute poses that usually had a contest attached to them. I was there with 7 other people I knew and we had so much fun. I've attended similar sketch events in NYC so I knew what to expect. You have to sketch quickly. I find the easiest materials to use are water-soluble pencils, wc pencils and wc crayons. I'm posting a few of the sketches that don't need me to have that "butt" icon attached to them. lol The woman did get down to pasties and tassels and very skimpy thong undies.

The last sketch is of the woman who was the emcee during a break. She was dressed in vintage clothing and owns a vintage clothing boutique.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

I must be a glutton for punishment. I got to bed about midnight and then I was up at 5:45 because my friend and I were meeting the NYC Urban Sketchers at Grand Central Station to sketch on Saturday. lol

I started with a digital sketch on the railroad going into the city. Then I sketched what is probably the most famous spot in Grand Central...the clock in the center. Then one more sketch of the steps and some of the archways.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

Lunch was downstairs in the food court and then I stayed down there to sketch. First I sketched people at the shoe-shine and then one of the bakeries that had a counter. The last sketch was of some of the other sketchers across from me at the bar where we went to relax and share our sketches at the end of the day.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

Thanks Doug and Debby. I had a busy weekend and each even involved a lot of sketching. I was exhausted by Saturday night. lol

On the way to and from the city last weekend I managed to do an iPad sketch going in and a pen sketch coming home.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

Here is a double page spread that I did down by the water at one of the boatyards. It was a Sunday so there was no business going on and I was able to sit there in my car without getting in the way.

One day this week I headed over to the Suffolk County Farm. I was able to sketch one of the cows and a few of the sheep before it started drizzling and I had to leave.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

Thanks, Debby!

A friend invited our sketch group to her house to sketch her teacup collection the other night. We had ourselves a little tea party with pretty cups, tea to drink, and cookies and lots of talking. Someone asked me how long it took me to sketch all of these, and all I know was we were there for at least 3 hours. Pat has an entire carton of cups with all sorts of different designs. I felt like the "Liz Steel" was coming out of me. lol

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

Good sketches, Joan. Urban sketching looks like it is a lot of fun. Your sketches of people are really good and the sketches of farm animals and tea cups are cute as well.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

Thanks Vivien, John, Debby, and Sandra!

We had some snow here recently (and again today). I did the first sketch in acrylics while standing on my patio. The trees looked like a winter wonderland. The second watercolor tree sketch was done at a local arboretum while I was sitting in my car.

Re: Joan's 2016 Sketches

While I was at the arboretum I took my sketchbook, my Elegant Writer pen, and my water brush and went for a walk. Everything looked so pretty covered in snow. It was just warm enough to stand in the snow and sketch without freezing.
