Sketch the World: 4

Back in the winter I participated in an online workshop with the Plastic Club of Philadelphia in which we visited a site called Window Swap and drew quick sketches from the scenes we chose to view.

(Look here for a full explanation of the site and the process.)

We drew pictures from everyday scenes from all over the world. It was so much fun that the club offered a series of sessions in May 2022 in which we did the same thing – we chose a window scene and drew for only ten minutes, producing several drawings in our individual styles over the course of an hour or so.

I will be showing you some of my results in a few posts.

Here are some pictures from the fourth session. In order, they are scenes from Italy (location undocumented); Alexandria, Virginia, USA; Czech Republic; Montreal, Canada; and Oregon, USA.

The sketchbook I used was about 5″ x 8″. For this group of pictures, I did some cleanup and refining of the compositions later on.

      Thank you. I really enjoy making lines (rather than shading with washes and so on) and these drawing sessions helped me get better at using lines to depict all kinds of things.
