An artsy friend of mine has started a sketching group, inspired by the Urban Sketching movement. Because we are rural we aren’t really an urban sketching group (wink wink) so we decided to call ourselves #riversketchcrawlers. We definitely have an ample supply of river around us ha ha.
We’ve been getting together every monday now for about a month (for me, them longer as Leah is the one who started the group) and I am completely enjoying our trips together, the art talk afterwards. I’ve gotten back to my watercolors because of it and I realized I missed them! What perfect timing since it is national watercolor month!
These were my two sketches I completed on my first evening with the group.
I ran out the next day to get myself a couple of proper art journals. I purchased two Strathmore journals, a 140lb cold pressed and a smooth 90lb mixed media. The next morning over my morning coffee I broke the Mixed Media journal in. I did a quick sketch of my deck chairs.
I think i’ve just realized how much I have missed my watercolors. 😉
