Sketching at the Marina

This week our sketching group went to a nearby marina.  Boats are such interesting subjects.   Putting curved hulls in perspective, adding masts, pilot houses and all sorts of marine gear,  drawing each boat to look like they’re floating on moving water, all adds up to a worthy challenge.   Everyone did a great job.



What I love is that everyone has their own unique approach.  John works carefully in pencil,


Allison enjoys ink and and wash,


And Susan likes to work in watercolor.


With a variety of styles and mediums we always have a great time seeing what everyone has done at our show and tell at the end of the session.  It’s inspiring to see everyone’s vision as well as the progress they are making by drawing weekly.

This weekend I’m off to the Urban Sketchers’ West Coast Sketchcrawl in Tacoma.  Fun. Fun Fun!!
