SketchCrawl in Freestone!

I hope you can join me on Saturday April 25th for a country-style SketchCrawl, starting at the Wild Flour Bread bakery, 940 Bohemian Highway in Freestone, CA 95472  Come if you like to sketch or want to give it a try.

What’s a SketchCrawl?  It’s a drawing marathon where you meet up in a place (usually cities, but we’ve got country) and basically go crazy and draw everything you experience there. . .in your little sketchbooks and with pens and pencils and watercolor paints or whatever is quick and easy.  In our case we also get to eat yummy things while sketching.  These events have become a worldwide phenomenon, the last one happening earlier this month in 90 locations around the world!

Freestone is such a lovely little place with not only bread ovens and vegetable gardens to sketch, but cows and barns and goats and houses with white picket fences and flower gardens, and of course lots of people eating ginger pear scones!

I’ll be there 9:00am-1pm, sketching til I crawl.  Come by whenever you can or, if you’re hardy, spend the whole day.  At 1:00 we’ll meet back in the parking lot at Wild Flour to share our sketches with each other.  This is a free event (except for the bakery goodies). Please leave the bakery parking lot available for the patrons’ use and find parking elsewhere.

And those of you who can’t join us “here”, please do some sketching “there”, and let us know how it was!

Oh, and by the way, my son Andy and I started work on a new sketchbooking video, which we’ll be posting some time in the near future.



  1. I do trust all the ideas you have introduced to your post.

    They’re very convincing and will definitely work.
    Still, the posts are very short for starters.
    May just you please prolong them a little from next time?
    Thanks for the post.
