Sketch Outing

Join us on Sunday, April 27th, 2014 from 2pm-4pm at the 5th Street Arcades for a sketch outing.  You have a lot of sketching opportunities in this area including the 5th Street Arcades (formerly Colonial Marketplace), Public Square, East Fourth, and the Old Arcade.  There are indoor spots in case of rain.  We'll meet under the giant cupcake a Colossal Cupcakes on Euclid Ave.  Parking should be ample, as there is no Indians' game in town that day.

Everyone is welcomed.  Beginners are warmly welcomed and encouraged.  Free to all.

Suggested items to bring, sketching material of choice and a chair or blanket to sit on.  Feel free to post any questions in the comments, or visit us on Facebook at Urban Sketchers Cleveland.

Tower City Fountain

Thumbnail sketches at Tower City Fountain
Exciting to sketch while the Cleveland International Film Festival 
was happening at Tower City. Especially fun for me because
Beth Harrington - director of The Winding Stream 
stayed with us and we had a Syracuse reunion.

Phone Sketches

Here are sketches I created on my phone. It's great for value studies, although it takes some getting used to. The first two are of the Fulton Rd. and Clark area and the third is Uptown in University Circle. 

And here are some sketches of people while waiting to get my car fixed.

Night out at Playhouse Square just before Christmas, 
the beautifully decorated State Theatre with a sold out crowd seeing Wicked.

Playhouse Square at night certainly was a challenge, all those lights?!

West 14th

I've been wanting to draw this house on West 14th for some time.  I did this for the woman who lives there.  I just sent it off to her, and I hope that she likes it.  It's an absolutely spectacular sight that I get to see on a regular basis.

While my wife ran an errand, I did this pencil sketch of a nice house in the West Park area of Cleveland.
