Sketchy Saturday

This week’s Sketchy Saturday top 10. Here we go with 10 enthusiastic, talented Sketch-Stars that have submitted their handy work to the office for this week’s Sketchy Saturday. In this week’s top 10 we see a range of styles, and levels of creativity which show that risk-taking is involved in getting your message across. Each sketch is as unique as a fingerprint and is almost like the artist’s signature. This is work that not only embodies their skills and creativity, but their experience, passion and thought process. To appreciate a creative piece of work is to open a doorway to understanding the person who created it. A gift that inspires us and connects us to one another.

” I have a group of friends that come out to draw a few times in a month (outdoors) and this drawing is the result of one of these tours. This is the Desterro Church Square, built by slaves in the 17th century, in our city. That day it rained and you can see rain spots on watercolor, which I liked a lot”. 7. by Oana Chiriac, landscape architect, Belgium

“The aim of the project was to design a Memorial Garden in Brookings, South Dakota, where we based our design on the quote “When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure”. We decided to create a feel of that treasure in the garden by using the right kind of plants, such as Betula platyphylla ‘Fargo’ (Dakota Pinnacle Birch) giving us a beautiful colour in the fall resembling gold and Acer platanoides ‘Crimson King’ (Crimson King Maple) with a purple foliage suggesting rubies, as well as the mix of pink and purple wildflowers – the treasure of the prairies. The goal was to celebrate the moments we had with the lost ones instead of surrendering to the sorrow. – Sketches are made with the use of an F and 2H pencil and the addition of ergo soft Staedtler colored pencils. – Team: Annaliese Hoffman, Slade Mutchelknaus, Marika Cieciura.” 2. by Maria Chughtai studying in 3rd year of bachelors in Architecture from LCWU Lahore Pakistan

“It’s a park in Newburyport mass. It was a note card done in the late 80’s to supplement my LA career. Pen and ink, printed on card stock. The original ink paper was called ‘opulux‘ hard to get. It has changed over the years, which makes it special.” – That’s this week’s Sketchy Saturday Top 10, congratulations to all of you who featured, you have come out on top of a very talented bunch of people.
