more watercolor

A workshop with Leslie Wilson inspired me to try watercolor without pen and ink. A beautiful day at St. Mary’s College in Moraga, you almost couldn’t pick anything not beautiful or peaceful.

1st Annual West Coast Urban Sketchers’ Sketchcrawl!

It starts tonight, and goes through Sunday.

We’ve gotten a bunch of media coverage in local papers around the East Bay and beyond. I think this is going to be a fun event. Event website

Sketch demo & sketch crawl

This Saturday the local Urban Sketchers group, of which I am a member, will be doing a talk and demo of our sketching kits at the main branch of the Oakland Public Library at Lake Merritt from 3 – 5 pm. 

The following weekend, the 1st Annual West Coast Sketchcrawl will be happening in Berkeley, San Francisco, and Oakland.

Our talented member Carrie McLish, who is also a journalist, wrote about them in Oakland Local. Read more about both events
