Sketches @ Blendz Coffee

still had some momentum from yesterday's sketchcrawl so decided to meet up with a couple of friends to do more sketching at Blendz coffee on Granville and Broadway. This is actually a pretty good location for drawing since it's right next to the busstop and there are people coming and going, and waiting for the buses etc. but of course i didn't draw ANY people this time.. next time around. here were the sketches done today...

Sketchcrawl Vancouver

Joined the 20th Annual International Sketchcrawl in the cold and windy Vancouver. Location was on Granville Island. First time joining. Compared to the other sketchcrawls around the world, I guess our turnout was not as impressive. I think we had about 15 people? But it was great drawing on the island and got to meet a lot of talented new people around town. If the weather was a bit warmer and the sun was out a bit earlier i think our group could have stayed together a bit longer before splitting off into groups. Here are the sketches from the crawl.

Still Life studies

Been trying to do some traditional painting lately.. so did some still life studies in my sketchbook... Thanks to Jonathan for letting me use his studio space for these and setting up.
The Gekkeikan Sake bottle was really intimidating to paint.
