worldwide sketchcrawl #34, let’s draw davis

sketchcrawl 34 davis farmers market

On Friday there was a massive rainstorm in northern California, with flood warnings and downpours so loud I could barely sleep. “But Saturday is the sketchcrawl!” I sighed. Not to worry – it all magically stopped, and the sun came out and the world warmed up and what a lovely day for sketching. It wasn’t a massive group, but it was a fun day sketching by the farmer’s market. I always sketch more slowly on these events, because I spend a lot more time talking while sketching, but that’s one of the fun things about sketchcrawls, meeting and sharing experiences with other like-minded folk. I started by sketching the other sketchers:

This was the day of the 34th Worldwide Sketchcrawl, and people in cities the world over were out braving the cold to sketch their cities, and be part of a global sketching community. Check out their results on the sketchcrawl forum...

More Davis sketches to come!

    Pete Scully, We at the Hattie Weber Museum of Davis are trying to save the old WPA restrooms — for their historical significance as a landmark of 1937 social programs and for their utility as 640 square feet of usable storage and display space. Our problem is that some think the building to be ugly. Could we engage you in our preservation campaign where what would be most useful is a Pete Scully sketch of the old restrooms with the Hattie Weber in the background adjacent. Make it look like a charming cottage with nearby rose garden. Show it without the trellis which will surely be removed. Make a guess how it would look when several of the doorways and windows are converted to display cases. Can Do? We’d be most appreciative and even in a compensatory mood.
