38th Chatcrawl today....

...oops I meant sketchcrawl!!! But honestly when over 50 sketchers turn up most of whom you are meeting for the first time...it is hard not to chat more that sketch.

We had over 50 sketchers turn up at the Botanic Gardens (thanks to Sydney Sketch Club!) and a great day meeting new people. What a crowd – very very exciting. We had 46C yesterday (hottest day on record) but today was lovely and cool and the isolated showers forecasted did not bother us all morning.


I am also very happy at how suitable my 'new style' is for these kind of occasions when I spend most of the time chatting. Using a watersoluble pencil(Derwent Sketching 4B) and splashing on paint very loose and wet and then more pencil or watercolour pencil really is perfect for me in this hyperactive very social state where sitting down and focusing on a sketch was just too hard today.

  2. I'm so envious of your large group! I've done the last two sketchcrawls solo. Great cacti sketches.
