Bryan Sketches

18th World Wide
Sketch Crawl
Saturday March 29
Bryan, Texas
I used a #314 Draughting pencil to do this.
My sister, working in downtown Bryan on Saturday. She elected to use oils and do some plein aire painting of a street scene. She does lots of outdoor work, so she was prepared to work!
I'll add what she did when she sends me a photo. Her painting, of course, was not dry enough to scan and none of us thought about taking photos until we were back home.
I seem to still be having trouble posting images on this blog. It let me add one, then keeps telling me that I am probably not connected to the internet. I may have to add each of them in a separate post, the way it's going.
Just a Thought:
Doesn't it seem like February and March have just flown by? It seems like the first of February was just a few days past when it was the end of the month. Now, it feels the same way for March. I'm still thinking of things that I intended to do for the month, and now it's almost gone.
If you are in this area, be sure to go over to see "Extracurricular" at the P.David Romei Art Center in College Station. This show is of work submitted by Brazos Valley Art Teachers. Among that group, there are some outstanding artists. There is a reception for them at the Art Center April 3 at 5:30 p.m.

Nice sketch. I am in college station and have been wanting to start a sketchcrawl for a while I was out of town in Jan, and I forgot this weekend, but I'd definitely be into doing a BCS sketchcrawl next time. Do you know when it is?

Thanks for the comment, Stephen. Sorry that you missed it. The SC site says that they have one every 2 or 3 months. The others seem to have been about every 3 months. I've asked but I guess they haven't decided on a date yet. It looks like it could be in June, maybe.
Watch the site or sign up to get the announcement. I'll let you know when I know something.
Hope we can get out advance notice for the next one and have everyone in the Brazos Valley drawing that day.
Enjoyed your blog. Your sketches are really nice!
