California sketchin'

Just got back from a great 30th anniversary trip with my lovely bride, Missy...I was able to carve out a little time for sketching!

Thursday, September 3, 2015


Our next Fort Worth-Dallas sketch outing will be 10am Saturday, September 19th.  Gayla and Mike Shannon have arranged a great morning at the historic Oakwood Cemetery, 701 Grand @ Gould on the north side of Fort Worth.  Oakwood dates to 1879, and is the burial site of many cattle barons, oilmen, and other legends in North Texas history.  The cemetery has some impressive monuments among ancient trees to sketch, and has great views across the Trinity to downtown.

We will meet in the Chapel for a brief history of the cemetery (15 min), then disperse to sketch singly, in pairs or in groups as you wish.  We’ll reconvene at 12:30pm to share sketchbooks and for a group photo, then head out for optional lunch/libations on the north side.  Bring a friend, and if this is your first outing with us, welcome!  A SketchCrawl isn’t a class, workshop or competition.  It's an opportunity for creative people to meet each other, draw together, and share their sketches with each other and online.

Bring your own sketching gear.  A hat and sunscreen are a good idea. Kids under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.  If you have questions shoot me an email at jim@townscape.com.  Please join us!
