20th Sketch crawl

The following are some of the sketches from the 20th Sketch Crawl. The location was Parc de la Cuitadella and this time I had some company. Check out my partner in crimes results over at the SketchCrawl forum (under Barcelona,Spain results). Looking forward to the next one already!

September Sketches

Well, October 2nd means my nephew is now one year old. Happy Birthday to him and congratulations to my sister and her husband. It was great to see them when they came over to visit Barcelona during the summer.

It also marks one year of the Sketch blog. It also coincided with the preview of the movie "Cher Ami"( previously titled Flying Heroes ) during the film festival in Sitges. A lot of faces I hadn't seen in awhile eager to see the results of almost four years work!

So with the usual delay, here's some sketches which should have been posted in September.

Can't go to the Zoo without paying a visit to these guys, they're real fun to watch.

Barcelona Zoo is full of Peacocks walking around freely. They're so use to people, they usually come up close begging for food ( so if a male sneaks up behind ya while drawing and belts out his cry it's enough to scare the pants of you).

This isn't a great drawing but it made me think about keeping poses modern- I think if I had 've made a pose of someone taking a picture I still would've made them look through the viewfinder!! Ouch!! Nowadays it's all cameras up in the air (although once or twice I have forgotten and held the digital camera up to my eye instead of looking at the LCD screen).

Don't particularly like this one (thinks it because I lost concentration half way through and forced myself to finish it ) but as I don't have any other building drawing....
