“5-Minute Sketching: People”

The book is out! “5-Minute Sketching: People” by Pete Scully. I’m happy to say some of my sketches are included in this book. First ever published!

This book is about how to sketch people quickly. As an Urbansketcher correspondent Pete offers great tips about proportions of the face and body and sketching techniques for people sketching. It can be purchased in Amazon. The sketches are great; done mostly by Pete but he also included sketchers from around the world. I had discovered a few favorites. (I had included only the pages where my sketches appeared.)

It was a beautiful Sunday morning . . .

and I went on a solo sketchcrawl. I had participated in the Davis sketchcrawl, “Let’s Draw Davis” which is part of a worldwide movement of sketchers, “Urban Sketchers“.

It was a great way to getaway and meet up with a friend just to talk.

I discovered this little sketchbook made by Holbein. It handles watercolor well and is not very thick so I can carry it in my bag. Plus it’s spiralbound.
