Saturday 16th April was the 31st Worldwide Sketchcrawl. Six of us spent the day at Montecasino sketching. The day was cold and rainy, so it was good that we were able to sketch inside. My first drawing was of this little police car which I thought appropriate since we heard that the watercolour society was asked to pay R5000 to paint in Montecasino so we were all wondering if we would be asked to leave at some stage.
We then broke for some coffee, enjoying each other’s results afterwhich most went home. Cathy and I continued in the spirit of the “crawl”. I decided I seriously needed to practise my figure drawing. Well, they ended up being 5 second sketches of people hanging around near the cinemas. Very tiring! Human beings do not keep still. The results are a little embarrassing, but, got to swallow my pride!
The rain had stopped, allowing for us to grab the opportunity to brave the cold and squeeze in one more sketch. I think we speeded up considerably as the degrees dropped.
