sketchcrawl drawings


Cape buffalo skull in the discovery room at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.


Phipps Conservatory - Buddhist pine (Podocarpa macrophylla). My notes beside this picture: Fountain splash mixed with Harold Arlen piano. Small child coughs a little cough. Smell of moss. Many languages.

The sketchcrawl was a great experience. Our group ended up just being immediate family, ranging in age from 4 to 45. Something for everyone, with two coffee shops and two museum-type places. We were only out from noon until five, and some of the time we were just walking and looking rather than sitting still and drawing, but I used five pages in my new journal and am happy with what I learned.

It was great fun, and encouraged us to try more sketching outings as a family. If we choose our destinations carefully, there is something for every attention span...
