Sketchcrawl Results 11/20/2010

Four intrepid sketchers braved the chilly and rain-soaked day to draw around 'Old Town Palo Alto'. Fortunately the rain stopped for about 2 hours and we were able to walk to views that inspired us. But the sky was filled with clouds. Here's the first of the sketches, which features the sculpture, Sunflowers. It functions as a seating area in front of Sun Market on California St. No one was taking advantage of the tables on this wet day. Nina Koepcke joined us in spirit as she sketched while serving as gallery attendant.

Sketchcrawl Nov. 20, 2010

Our next Sketchcrawl will take place in “Old Town’ Palo Alto. We will meet 
November 20, 2010  at 1 PM 
Printer’s Inc Café
320 South California Ave
Palo Alto CA 94306

Then we will disperse to find our own little gems that attract our pens. There are older buildings, cafés, a mural at Sun Market, public art and lots of street activity. There is also a gallery at Printer’s Inc--it used to be an independent bookstore in the not too recent past, hence the name.

I’m planning to publicize the group more in the next few weeks and hopefully we will have a few more sketchers joining us.

New Sketching Dates

Hi Sketchers!
We will be meeting on the following dates to sketch. Watch for details.
Saturday, November 20, 2010  1-3:00 PM Old Town Palo Alto
Saturday, December 18, 2010  1-3:00 PM Mountain View

We will be sketching in the downtown areas of towns and cities of the South Bay during the next few months. This will allow us to retreat to sheltered spots, like cafes, to avoid inclement weather.
