SKETCHCRAWL here in SAN DIEGO



These are the sketches I did for the SKETCHCRAWL here in SAN DIEGO.
It was so much fun meeting a whole new bunch of artist. We had our inspiration from Bazar Del Mundo in Old Town and then went to a lovely lunch were we passed around our sketches and all ooh and aah over them. There are some talented artist here .
We already have a date for next month to meet and sketch. What fun !
Check out on: facebook/sketchcrawl/flickr all the sketches from around the world.
What a lovely day that was :-)   Thanks carol !

PS: this last sketch I did because of the name of the store
" VIVA COLORES "  how fitting.

Wow! I especially love the cactus sketch. What better venue than San Diego to go out and to this right? I've read other blogs complaining about how too cold it was to participate.

Dominique-thanks for stopping by to view my blog and your kind words. I envy you for being able to go on sketch crawls in nice warm San Diego. Here in Wisconsin it is snowing and the high will be only 9 degrees tomorrow. Very nice sketches and it looks like you are having fun.

Bonjour Dominique. How nice to glimpse at your sketches once again. I too so enjoyed the outing and meeting other creative people. I agree, there was a lot of talent in that group! I'm so glad you came and Desiree and I hope to join all of you again soon! Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting!

Dominique, these are some great sketches. Sounds like you had a lot of fun with this. I'll tell you, up here in Winnipeg today there would be no crawling... -47C with the wind chill. Not too many sketchers outside!

dominique eichi said...

Vern,Thanks - sorry about the weather here we're having a Santa Ana wind which makes it really warm.
The day of the sketchcrawl was 84 but now it's 69.
Stay warm

Dominique...super sketches. And it di sound like a fun time. Need one of those get-togethers here in the rainforest...James

Hey James, just find a couple of other artist to go sketch with and there you have it. OR You could go by yourself with one of those critters you encounter and you'll have a Sketch Crawling time together. : )
