Hi, welcome to my sketching blog. I figured this is a good way to share my passion about sketching and to motivate myself to keep practicing and getting better. I hope you can get to enjoy sketching as much as I do.

Today we had our first Sketching Philadelphia Meet-up at One Shot Coffee and Cafe. We’re looking for all Philly sketchers to join us for future sketchcrawls.
Had a few minutes today during my lunch break, but it was raining, so sketched indoors at the lobby of Penn One/Suburban Station building, Center City, Philadelphia.
I had a few minutes today at lunch to try out a new felt tip pen and a new sketchbook. These are a bunch of motorcycles that are always parked at JFK Boulevard and 17th in Center City Philadelphia.
My wife joined a group of knitters and asked me to go with her. I got some water soluble graphite pencils at the store next door and sketched them doing their thing.
Here are some sketches and paintings I’ve done lately with the Meet Up group “Art Among Us”. The figure drawing ones were done at Newark Art Alliance (10, 10, 20min poses).
This morning we attended a re-enactment of the Battle of Brandywine at Sandy Hollow Park in Pennsylvania. Participants had fantastic costumes and were very much into their characters. It certainly was a very interesting outing.
