At Kailua Beach ParkPosted: March 6, 2016
After four events in Honolulu it was high time to cross the Pali. The weather was spectacular: not a cloud in the sky and barely a ripple in the sea. Quite a contrast to The Eddie last week.
Like so often before, a slew of sights begged for our attention; and, again like so often before, the morning flew by – time to gather! New arrivals and USkO veterans shared sketches and techniques in our show-and-tell circle. Color pencils became the theme of the day, taking center stage both in Ivan’s sketch of paddlers entering the bay, and in Kev’s fabulous multi-color revolver pencil. Diversity ruled though, as watercolors, charcoal, pen, and pencil all made appearances too. Sketching is fun, but to us the mini exhibition at the end of our events is always the highlight. Again, a few of us stayed longer to tweak sketches or even start new ones.
Our next event is at the Prince Kūhiō Festival in Kapi‘olani Park. Don’t miss it!
