SATURDAY: Sketch our Village

In the early days of the pandemic we got an event suggestion from Ryan Mahoney.  It seemed like a good idea to bring our focus of our virtual sketching a little closer to home and Ryan’s proposal sounds interesting.  Here is the gist of what he proposed:

On Saturday you’ll be given a map with many interesting places highlighted.  Each sketcher will choose a street view location in Google Street View Maps - NYC as their starting point.  Our focus is going to be Greenwich Village, which includes many different neighborhoods. Each area has a different feel and look, so we should end up with loads of interesting sketches.  

Here are the suggested rules:  
You can move no more than 3-4 clicks in any direction - (NSEW) away from the starting point  - Paint from any angle (flat, vertical, 3d pan & zoom, etc.)  By limiting ourselves to 3 to 4 clicks we stay in the original neighborhood exploring the area with our art.

For anyone unfamiliar with Google Street View we’ll do a demonstration to help you get started.



There are no fees. All drawing skill levels are welcome
