First Sketch Crawl a Blast!

Thanks to all those who made it out the first Cleveland Sketch Crawl. I can't believe the weather we had...80 degrees in October...unbelievable.

We had 10 sketchers show up and crawl through the city's "arcade district" (not an official title...but perhaps one that could catch on!). Because the weather was so nice we decided to sketch outside, so we soaked in the sites of E. 4th Street and then headed over to the Library's reading garden. Local artist Tom Roese was on hand to offer sketching tips for those of use that needed a bit of help (thanks Tom...I think I've got the perspective trick you taught us down).

This is a great excuse to get out of the house and take the morning to sketch and meet new people. The city is your inspiration and there are literally thousands of interesting and unique subjects to sketch. Our next Sketch Crawl will take place on November 3rd. I'll have more details about the location for that crawl....but for now...enjoy some of the sketches from this past Saturday!
