A group of DFW area sketching enthusiasts met Sunday for Urban Sketching -- the third in Fort Worth Central Library's sketching and journaling workshop series.
Distribution of the beginning and intermediate sketch kits was followed by a talk on the colorful history of nature and travel journaling and a discussing of some of the options (media, technique, subject and style) the modern sketcher has to choose from.
meant we could focus on sketching rather than worrying about sunburn
The forecast thunderstorms never materialized. And everyone became so involved in their drawing that it was 5:30 before anyone bothered to check the time. The workshop was originally scheduled to end at 5, but no one complained about running overtime. (In fact, it wasn't until the lights came on in the courthouse clock tower that the group conceded that it might be time to head for home.)
Thanks to a generous donation from the folks at Stillman & Birn every returning participant in the Sept./Oct. journaling workshop series has received a FREE 5.5" x 8.5" Epsilon Series Sketchbook!
