Join us for a bonus sketch outing in October. Let's get as much sketching in as possible before winter settles in.
We'll be sketching the Marin Family's Halloween display. They've been doing this for a few years, and this year is the biggest yet. They made these giant Transformers themselves, and they have them on display right now.
This is a residential street, so please be considerate of parking spaces, driveways, and lawns. There is an empty parcel just slightly diagonal across the street from the display, so this is a good place for us to congregate.
Please comment to this post, if you have any questions.

Let's hope that we have weather like this for one more outing the last Sunday of October.

As a side note, the one booth is "SubRosa." The guy in the booth was always in the way of the second half of the sign, but I thought at one point, I saw a "d," so I went with "Road."

Merwin's Wharf restaurant
1785 Merwin Ave, Cleveland, OH
Meet at restaurant entrance
Please join us for our September Sketch Outing. We'll be meeting at Merwin's Wharf restaurant along the river. It's owned by the Cleveland Metroparks. Since we plan to sketch from their patio, weather permitting, it would be best if everyone orders at least a drink or food. There will be other places to sketch in the general area to sketch, if you decide to not stay on the patio. If it were to rain, we will sketch inside the restaurant. Of course, you can choose to sketch inside if you want, regardless of the weather.
I will post more specific directly this weekend, as the Columbus Ave bridge is still closed. Please watch here or on our Facebook page for more information.
All sketchers, all ages, all abilities, and all mediums are welcomed to join us. We love to give tips to those just starting out. If you have any questions, please feel free to post in the comments.
We generally meet up at 2pm, and then scatter to sketch what we find interesting, and then we meet up at 4pm for photos and show and tell. You are more than welcomed to start earlier, come later, or stay longer. It's very addictive once you start up.
This may be our last good outdoor sketching event before the cold weather sets in, so please consider coming out with us.

It was a nice, but chilly morning, this past Sunday with a friend drawing from the overlook on Abby Road near the new bridge and Sokolowski's. It give a great view of the downtown skyline. Would be a great spot to sit and watch fireworks.
My friend was painting, and how the sun kept coming and going was causing her some problems. But, since I knew she'd be working longer than I would, it was nice to do a sketch that involved more than what I would usually do.
I did find that sketching from further away did help me get the proportions better and work tighter.
