Sketching the Fiddler

When the Whidbey Island Sketchers went to Port Townsend recently, we ran into a colorful street musician.  Sherryl snapped a couple of pictures before moving on.  We just couldn't resist revisiting the photos and giving ourselves a mid-month "mini sketch challenge" to remember this lively fiddler. 

Faye applied her lovely watercolor washes to our subject.

Lois used colored pencil on paper, achieving beautiful tones.

Lisbeth couldn't be bothered to try to paint his plaid shirt so used "artistic license" to paint a plain shirt instead!

Sherryl's deep and intense style captured our character in a mighty way.

And Sue managed to apply watercolor to communicate all the movement and whimsy of our favorite street fiddler. 

Betty Azar's new to sketching but we think she did a very dandy job capturing our funny fiddler friend. 

What fun!
