This morning's sketch crawl

Two sketch crawl friends and I met at epic café this morning to start our mini sketch crawl on Fourth Avenue. Seated outside in front of epic with a café au lait and a croissant, I began watercoloring Jose's VW bus with the "Shakti" plates.












For our second stop we sat on the shaded steps of "The Coyote Wore Sideburns" Hair Salon to sketch the colorfully painted house across the street at 643.



















Stop number three was at Sabine's Café Passé where we drank iced hibiscus tea coolers outside under the shade of a large table umbrella while we sketched. The photo shows Sara on the left and Alanna on the right.
























We did our last and final sketches sitting out at Sabine's café. Seated outside, we had a good view of the Co-op (better than is seen in my photo). From our positions at the table, the purpley-blue side of the co-op building was unobstructed by the umbrella that you see in the photo. As usual, click on any of my sketches for a larger view. And click here to see Alanna's sketches of the day (Sara does not have a blog--yet).

I like comparing and noticing the photos along with your paintings. I feel anticipation of seeing the same spot myself while out and about.

¡Hola Alanna! I will link your blog entry to this one, too. Your co-op drawing and VW drawing are really nice.

:) Thank you, anon, whoever you are.
