Sketch Crawl and Santa Anna

World Wide SketchCrawl 35. Fellow USkTX sketcher Chris F. and I met out at the the San Jacinto Monument for the reenactment of the Battle of San Jacinto. This was a great opportunity to capture a wide assortment of activities and the reenactors dress and gear was wonderfully varied. Quite a few people had questions about what we were doing. From the website "The battle reenactment dramatizes the decisive battle where General Sam Houston led his Texian soldiers to victory over the Mexican Army eventually leading to almost one million square miles of Mexican territory becoming a part of the United States.  The reenactors  dramatically interpret the Runaway Scrape (Texians fleeing from the advancing forces of Santa Anna), the cannon duel and the final battle between the two forces."


  1. Greats sketches Judith. I like a lot the last one, with the spectators in the left corner. Regards

  2. Funny, we spent so much time sketching the Texian camp, but the sketches of the Mexican camp are so much more vivid. I like them all
