Animo Sketchers @ Abbott Kinney

Some student and adviser work. Some shy sketchers were absent.

Some Animo Urban Sketchers

The sketchers had a fun afternoon of architecture sketching on this busy street where old Venice meets new.  We drew a lot of attention and even had an interested woman ask to become a member of the club.

Los Angeles Sketches

Santa Monica Pier

Hello Urban Sketchers. This was drawn a while back on our very first trip to Abbot Kinney. It was my first time using water colors on an actual sketch.

Ist sketch back in 2012

Animo Urban Sketchers are back at it for 2012 and with blog authorship spreading I'm expecting to see lots of new uploads!

This is my first sketch of the New Year.  With light still fading fast on our little group and the chill coming in quickly off the ocean, we are staying close to school for our outings.  This is a favorite spot right now:  The Talking Stick coffee shop.  Lots of people to practice drawing and hot chocolate while sketching!  In this drawing you can just see A-USK members Gabriella and Nuri peeking over the the man on the left.
