Vancouver, BC, Canada [ Results ]

Post by CyberDave » Sun Apr 14, 2013 6:23 pm

Hi all.. :wave: :wave: :wave:

I had not anticipated getting free time on the week-end as lately work has been extremely busy. Because of this I had not planned to get out to sketch, nor did I set up any advanced notice for the sketchcrawl in the forum. :oops:
I was hoping someone else in Vancouver would organize this one. :think:

So my "crawl" today was again a solo event. :(
I had a late start today and did not get out for my "crawl" until afternoon, as I slept in. :)
I was able to do the sketch below, and started by doing the rough of another. The second was a cyclist, so speed was definitely a key factor, as these guys don't stay still for long. I'll see about finishing the second sketch asap as I want to use the cyclist as a base for an up-coming painting.

Sketch done in an Opus brand Watercolour sketchbook. The surface is great to work on and takes wet washes of watercolour well especially when using watercolour brushes.

This is a sketch done of a street vendor on Davie Street in the West-end section of Vancouver. Not quite sure how legal this was :crazy: especially the array of junk brought in via old shopping carts.

Cheers :)
Dave

Hi Mark..

Thanks..
Not too bad, just been really busy working for a living - pretty tired - so Saturday morning had a sinfully delicious snooze in bed. It was overcast and a little rain in the morning.
I finally dragged myself our to get some fresh air and pick up some art supplies from Opus Arts.
The sun came out and the afternoon was beautiful and sunny.

I haven't sketched in months, although I was doing some full painting when I had some time.

Hope you and Sara are doing okay, I'll see about emailing you and catch up.

Best wishes
Dave

I hope someone else inVancouver got out yesterday for some sketching. I would like to see others posting here.

OK Dave,
Let's email. Found a couple new people in the family history, and will have a peek at ancestry.com soon.

Rough at present and no colour :) but not quite as rough as the started sketch on site, I did a little clean up and made some changes from memory :think:

Nice sketch of the street vendor, but this one of the biker is wonderful. Thanks for sharing these.

I thought I should post the final version, just to wrap this up.
