Sketchy Saturday

This week’s Sketchy Saturday top 10. This week’s Sketchy Saturday top 10 is as electrifying as ever. However with such a diverse range, one does have to question – “How do we put the various styles up against each other and choose a top 10? It’s not easy, mind you, but let’s start by looking at the name “Sketchy Saturday“, the key word is “Sketchy” and preference will always be given to work with a high sketchlike presence and raw style as opposed to the more refined rendered types. However with such a diversity of style and no control over who enters on what week, keeping a level of consistency in the judging process is a challenge in itself, and sometimes the sketchy entries are swamped by the more refined styles. This week we achieved a good balance between the raw sketches and the more artistic entries. Enjoy this week’s Sketchy Saturday top 10! 10. by Anastasia B.

“I love to draw, paint and sketch, especially combining the reality and imagination. I call it Realistic-Comical. This drawing ” The Stitch at Animal Kingdom, Orlando, FL” was done in less than 45 minutes. I always set the time limit to practice my sketching ability. The sketch was made using ink and pencil (Color) technique on canvas canson paper”. 9. by Andi Papastefani, Boston, MA, USA. student (graduate candidate) of Landscape Institute of the Boston Architectural College

“This sketch is part of a proposal for a Front Garden for a new small villa (Villa XLT) to the owner and to her architect. This Front Garden is designed in cottage style, aiming to create a joyful entrance to this small contemporary villa. Villa XLT is designed by Skender Luarasi, architect and it is built in Tirana, Albania near Dajti mountain. In the design of this front garden Mediterranean shrubs are used, along with small trees and grasses.
