Bates Nut Farm Scarecrow Contest

I attended an event at the Bates Nut Farm with the San Diego Urban Sketchers today. Many of us drew the scarecrows during the scarecrow contest. I created my sketch with a brush pen and watercolor.
 This is a 3:09-minute video of the event showing the scarecrows, the artists, and their sketches.

A quote from the minimalists

Change is possible. You can make yourself into someone you want to be.

Drawing at the Opera

Several artist groups were invited to the San Diego Civic Center to sketch during the dress and music rehearsal of Pirates of Penzance. I participated in this event last night. We had a little reading light and kept very quiet while drawing. It was a fun challenge drawing the moving singers. I dropped in watercolor on the first few sketches but decided my sketchbook was too big for me to be painting quickly.

Sketchbook page TV drawings

My Daler Rowney sketchbook is 11 x 14 so I used a carpenters pencil to draw with. I wanted a line that would not get lost on the large paper. This sketchbook paper is 65 lb and does not hold water very well.
