Nice Weather

This morning the sketch group met at Pioneer Square. The weather was nice, though a little bit on the chilly side. We spent about an hour sketching the people there and then decided to hop on the max and head up to Lloyd Center and back.

I had forgotten how much I enjoy Max sketching. I am still using an ink pen in an effort to sketch quickly and gain control of my lines. It has been nerve wracking but I am starting to feel more comfortable with it.

The group sketched a lot of the same marks so it will be fun to see all of our different takes on them when Dan and Gary get their sketches posted on here.

Saturday's Spoils

I think these images might come in a little small, but I had better just post it since it is already Thursday and the new sketch meet is just a couple of days away.

I got quite a few pages of sketching done, all done with ball point pen and probably spending about 5 seconds on each one. I am still trying to get movement and motion in just a few lines. It has been a frustrating but rewarding process.

If the weather is bad again on Saturday then the group will be meeting at the same place as last week. On the benches in front of the GAP store in the Pioneer Square Mall.

See you there!

First Sketch

Today was officially the first sketch meet of the new term at school. The weather was nice and warm and there were a lot of things going on around Pioneer Courthouse Square. It is a fantastic place to sketch.

Gary, a new member of the sketch group and a Media Arts and Animation major at the AI stopped by to sketch. Hope to see his sketches up here soon. Above are a couple pages from todays sketch book. I have been using a ball point ink pen lately. I am trying to become more comfortable and loose with my line work. Peace.
