SketchCrawl.com

I just joined SketchCrawl.com, a forum for people who want to be both sketcher and socialite. For one day, every few months there is a world-wide sketching day, local groups from all around the globe go out and draw and then post the results on the forum. I think this is a wonderful idea and I plan, for the first time, to join the next Stockholm SketchCrawl. Enrico Casarosa founded the forum, SketchCrawl back in 2006 (not 100% sure of that date) and has been growing in popularity ever since.

Life Drawing 2012

Here are my Life Drawing sketches from this year so far.

Life Drawing by David Meldrum 2012

Lunch Sketch #5

I started this yesterday but was unable to complete due to my work getting in the way. I have to consider this as a failure in one respect, namely that it does not resemble the singer! But that’s life, I’ll do it better next time.

Morrissey? (Not really.)

Lunch Sketch #4

I must admit, it is hard to finish a sketch during ones lunch break; today it was complete sometime between – afterwork and the evening meal. The sketch took one and a half hours to complete, I am learning a lot by my mistakes and there were plenty!

Jeff Bridges?

Lunch Sketch #3

I started this yesterday but then I got interrupted by work so I ended up finishing it today. It’s not perfect but I’m happy enough with it. The purpose of these lunch time sketches it to get myself out of a bad habit, I want to stop just mindlessly surfing my lunchtimes away. Who knows, I might even improve my drawing skills too!

Grace Jones?

Lunch sketch number two

It may not be the best caricature I have ever drawn but I am happy to be sketching with my new mini-water-colouring set, a ‘Field Box’ from Winsor & Newton.

Obama?

Lunch sketch

I’ve promised myself to start sketching everyday so here is my lunch with Michael Caine!
