I’ve been occupied again this week with issues relating to activities of the new Urban Sketchers London group. On Saturday, we held our first Sketchcrawl. This is very ably organized by Pete Scully (Pete Scully), whose hands were drawn and annotated maps are an artwork in themselves! We’d a wonderful sunshiney day.
Pete does a count-up from the attendance bed linens and around about 50 people signed the sheets and more people came for part of the day. There were some amazing sketches and a lot of variety in the sketching we saw although, rather oddly, quite definitely less watercolor sketching than I think occurs elsewhere.
That said, we had rather a great deal of architecture in Fleet Street and the Temple to cope with! My fellow creator associates of the Urban Sketchers London blog will be publishing sketches on our respective sketch weblogs and the metropolitan sketchers blog later this week. Yesterday I set up a Flickr Group for people to create their sketches to who went to the Sketchcrawl – that you can find here. There won’t be there just yet, as we’ve not yet written to the people who went to the sketchcrawl.
In the meantime I’m highlighting below one particular who arrived to the sketchcrawl – and the task they did and the articles they wrote. I had a terrible lot of “looking at London” on Saturday! I’ve also highlighted this content of a remarkable BBC2 program about A Picture of London broadcast on Saturday night. If you’re interested in how people portray London in paintings over the centuries it quickly recommend you catch up using the BBC iPlayer hyperlink in my post. We discovered from those coming to the Sketchcrawl that there are various other groupings out there who are also drawing London – and we try to connect up for some reason.
In particular, a lot of individuals who arrived to the sketchcrawl also follow Drawing London on Location group via the Meetup site. Personally, I quite definitely enjoyed getting together up with illustrator James Oses (James Oses Illustrator) yesterday. He produced some absolutely wonderful drawings of several of the old paper structures in Fleet Street. London Sketch Crawl was submitted on Franvisions. Now I believe Fran is named Francesca but I’ll let her identify herself.

Yor is now able to see even more sketches and photos of the Sketchcrawl in the NEW Urban Sketchers London – Group Pool. Botanical Illustration is the art blog of the Denver Botanic Gardens’ Botanical Art and Illustration Certificate Program. Last week they highlighted that how the Botanical Illustration program memorializes Sydney Parkinson. I came across this blog Jamie Kapitain Artist by Canadian landscape artist Jamie Kapitain. He posts sketches and essential oil paintings on canvas.
Michael Chesley Johnson noticed this post, How deep is your space on your blog of the Oil Painters of America. It’s about one of his very favorite painters, Charles Movalli, who researched with Emile Gruppe. People have commented before about the fact that the media restrictions of the BP Portrait Award means that types of portraiture which don’t involve the utilization of acrylic or essential oil color are lost from view.
Photographic Specimens by Michael Mapes on clarifies how Michael Mapes creates specimen boxes of dissected images and other items related to the individual pinned to produce an image of the initial photographic portrait. I think it’s a new take on an old approach and the images are incredibly effective. I wonder how long they will last just.
New Thread & Nail Portraits by Pamela Campagna are also very effective. This is what the social media maze looks like – one look made my mind hurt! I’m seeing quite a few sources to Susan Mumford’s Be Smart about Art Academy – it looks interesting. Robert Genn highlighted the destiny of trendy products such as dark velvet art. For the uninitiated – this is what black velvet artwork appears like this on eBay. I think this must have been an American trend – I don’t keep in mind seeing a lot of this in the UK.

I’ve always preferred Da Vinci’s drawings and cartoons to his paintings. Anybody that has actually seen the charcoal and iPad drawings in this exhibition would be in no doubt of this.
