Sketchcrawl: Casey, Sandy, and Shirley

Casey, Sandy, and I met this morning at 10 and spent the day sketching together in Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  It is so much fun to meet other EDM members - who you feel like you know from reading their blogs, enjoying their art, and exchanging comments.

 Sandy and I would like to sketch faster and looser like Casey - so we watched her carefully!  The 3 of us will upload our individual journal pages as they are completed - I'm not sure that mine are too different from my normal style as much as I tried.

Here are two photos:  We started at the Toy Boat Pond, moved to Bethesda Fountain, then had lunch at the Central Park Boathouse.  We ended the day on the Sculpture Garden Roof and in the Greek and Roman Galleries at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Left to Right: Casey, Shirley, Sandy.

We all sketched random people at the cafe at the Toy Boat Pond, Bethesda Fountain, the Boat House restaurant where we had lunch, a statue in the Greek and Roman Galleries, and an Etruscan Chariot.  However, Casey sketched lots more!  Here are my sketchbook pages, in that order:

SHIRLEY!!! MY FIRST NOTE WAS LOST -- BUT OH MY GOSH!! THESE ARE ABSOLUTELY FABUOUS!! IT IS WONDERFUL TO FINALLY 'SEE' YOU!!!!! AND CASEY AND SANDY!!! HELLO!! HOW I WISH i COULD HAVE BEEN THERE TOO!

YOUR SKETCHES ARE DEFINITELY DEFINITELY LOOSER -- ESPECIALLY THE FACES -- THAT FOUNTAIN -- REMINDED ME OF LAURA'S (LAURELINES) -- AND WHAT A GRET JOB ON THE FIGURES!!! BRAVA! BRAVA!!! WHAT A GREAT DAY!! WHAT GREAT SKETCHES!!!! WOWOWOWOWO!

hey girlfriends!! oh I was there in spirit!!! Thought of the 3 of you several times that day! You all are gorgeous! The sketches are great and when I saw the one of the 3 headless nymphs...well, I thought "all they need is Casey, Shirley and Sandy's heads!" My favorites are the boathouse and the fountain...I am so excited about meeting up this fall with Casey, Ronell and Robyn too....

What fun seeing all of you beautiful artists! I wish I could join you! I think you really succeeding in loosening up in your fountain sketch. It looks a lot like something one might see on Laurelines. Very nice!

Oh Shirley you finished them beautifully and it is fun to revisit the day through your blog - I agree you did achieve some looser style - I have finished mine but cannot get this computer to open my blogger site for some reason - Can't wait for the next time!

Shirley, Thanks again for a great day! Your drawings are really lovely - it's so much fun to see how different our interpretations are. That fountain is a triumph!

Oh you guys! How great to see you together with each other and your day's art. I will certainly try to join you whenever I get to NYC.

...as I already wrote in Casey's blog: what a nice idea to meet each other and to sketch together!!! The photos are wonderful. Isn't it great to meet like-minded people all over the world? ...And, Shirley, lovely sketches and colours (as always)!

Somehow I missed these when you first posted them---what a delight to see them and you! Your sketches are wonderful, as always. I particularly like the boathouse and fountain ones. What very lovely women, in spirit AND looks, you all are.

Yeah some great sketches Shirley! How nice to see you and the other ladies. Sounds like a perfect day. Loved your drawing of The Gerkin too.

Your drawings are awesome and I love the pictures of you three. It looks like it was soo fun.

What a treat to see you all - and wow, how great you look! This is a lovely post with so much to enjoy - the boathouse and the fountain in particular.

Looks like you had a great time! Your sketches are just wonderful. I was in Central Park too the week before, and will be posting my sketches soon (am posting my washington dc sketches first).

Did you see the Poiret exhibit in the Met? Highly recommended. I did some sketches there as well.
