21st World Wide SketchCrawl Results


looking down Rothchild Boulevard in Tel Aviv

Israel's full day cross-country SketchCrawl  plans were scaled back because of the worry in the country, but I managed to find a couple of friends willing to go out with me for a couple of hours and participate in the 21st World Wide Sketchcrawl.  We were all 1st time participants, and considering they had no idea what they were getting into, my friends were very good-natured and downright enthusiastic about settling down and drawing. My friend, fellow artist, and veteran SketchCrawler, Marcello, stayed close to home and family in the Galilee, but managed to complete some lovely drawing and paintings all on his own. We were with you in spirit, Marcello! Click to see Marcello's sketch results here.

To see sketch results from all over the world, go here. Maybe you will find a group to join!

We perched on the beautiful boulevard Rothchild and here are 3 different drawings of a building directly across from us:

How nice! lovely drawings! :) sorry I couldn't make it... Rothschild Boulevard is such a great place to walk/draw/take photos/sit on benches! It's one of my favorite places in Tel Aviv. Have a good week

Wow great sketches! Next time I will definitely join you.

By the way, how do you get your photographs so straight? When I try photographing my art, it always comes out skewed ...

I was complaining about the cold but certainly i could walk freely where I was with no fear and see people drawing and going by as a normal day.I bow to all of you that teach me again one more lesson.And clap my hands for your good willing.

Just wanted to say thanks for stopping by my blog and that I enjoyed going through your blog. Transparent watercolors can be so fresh and spontanious. And it is nice to see others that use the medium in that way.
