The spirit of the De Tourist Sketch Walk was to create a group project that consisted of sketched and found objects, art and maps, words, lines, tones and color. The objective was to capture the unique moment of that late afternoon and early evening in August.

I sat in the grass and chatted with Jason. I did two sketches of the cemetery that were mostly about trying to capture the long shadows and the bright but fading sunlight. Easier to write than to sketch. The personal experiment was to use a red pen for the drawing part.
Verdict: Interesting, worth exploring a little more.
The cemetery closed at 6:30 and we headed back to the Open Source Gallery. We compiled bits and pieces. Richard sewed elements into a long panorama sketch book that told the story of our sketch walk. Everyone contributed a part. The last two photos show us back at the Gallery and a view of Richard examining the fold-out.
