October Ad Hoc Sketch Outing

Saturday, October 18th, 2014 from Noon to 3pm.  4807 Wichita Ave, Cleveland, OH.  Wichita Ave is off of Pearl. 

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.

Merwin's Wharf on the Cuyahoga River

Quick Sketches
It was a wonderful sketch outing at Merwin's Wharf, next to the closed Columbus Bridge. Here are some quick thumbnail sketches. On the left are a series of two minute sketches (1 x 1.5") and at the right are 15-20 minute sketches (3 x 2.5") using General's Woodless Graphite on sketch paper. Plenty of interesting activity on the river and the patio.

Merwin's Wharf Sketch Outing

A great turnout today on such a beautiful early fall day.  We gathered at Merwin's Wharf which is a restaurant that is owned by the metroparks and sits right on a sharp bend in the river.  Everyone found such fun things to sketch, and it seemed like no two sketchers faced the same direction.  I actually found this scene from the parking lot.  Several others sat along the river.  It was great to see some new faces out sketching.

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

Tremont Arts and Cultural Festival

Met up my sketching friend this morning before the Tremont Arts and Cultural Festival started.  We sketched for a bit before walking around, shopping the booths, and getting some food.  This isn't one of my better sketches, and I don't think it does justice to how many booths were set up.

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."
