Every day in August – more sketches

The next 6 sketches for the wonderful Sketchpack Project 2013 out of Capetown, South Africa. The first 6 can be seen here – Every Day in August.

We have a Facebook group for members of this project where we post our daily sketches and chat away about sketches and everything else. It is quite amazing to say this – but I seem to have a few new friends in Capetown and Johannesburg area. Some even invited me to visit – an amazing feat considering the distance – 8494 miles  – and amount of jet fuel needed to get there from Chicago. But you never know… if there is a will – there is a way!

    I like this group and the ones you posted earlier. Sometimes it is fun to do something small…just for fun. I like the idea of the project!

      Joan, perhaps you would be interested in joining the project next year? If so, let me know and I will connect you with the Artsource, Cape Town.

        Hi Alex
        Maybe will be interested to join your project in 2014? From a French sketcher and watercolorist

          Thanks, Christian! Di Metcalf from Cape Town is the brain and organizer behind this project. We will probably do this again in 2014. We have a Facebook group of people who did 2013, so we can keep in touch. If you want, I can invite you there so you can be in the loop for news.

      What a wonderful thoughtful comment, Anne! I am so lucky to have met you though various endeavors we do together. Bless the internet age where distance stopped being a barrier to friendship.
