Sketchcrawling on a Sunny Spring DayApril 12, 2009 at 6:52 pm | Posted in Drawing | 1 Comment
sketchcrawl.com is a website that organizes drawing marathons around the world regularly. Having read about that from a fellow blogger already a few months ago, I had the opportunity to join in yesterday. The three of us had lots of fun! I haven’t found the time to practice and improve my drawing skills lately, so this was a brillant excuse to go out and actually draw something. Here’s the result:
In fact, I got reminded that I like doing this enough so I went out on my own today to do some more drawing. And as is often the case when I’m looking for something to draw, I found a place I must have walked by dozens of times by now and I never actually saw what’s there:
It’s the old cross from the tower of a little church which has been replaced by a new one, and they put the old one up at the backside of the church. It’s a great idea, when do you usually have the opportunity to look at a cross from a church-tower close up? It’s mounted on a big stone and looks really beautiful. So, hopefully there will be more sketching in the near future, I definitely plan to be there for the next sketchcrawl!
On a different note, my blog stats insist that there’s something to celebrate today! I can’t really believe it, but this is my 100th post on this blog. That’s a couple of years worth of weekly posting, which just about fits, so I haven’t been slacking very often. For the curious, here are some stats: I’ve had 33,706 page views till now, and my most popular page is the Needlepoint Lace Tutorial. This blog has been quite an adventure, and I think quite a few projects around here get finished just so I can post them here, which is a good thing.
So, on this note, I’d like to ask you what you like most on my blog and would love to read more about. I won’t promise anything, but I’ll try to take up any suggestions you have.
