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.

These are 2 pages from the life drawing session this morning at Judy's. We had 30 second, 1 minute, 2 minute poses then went on the 5s, 10s, and a 20-minute pose. I sketched in a Daler Rowney Sketchbook with 65 lb paper.

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.

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.
