Global Sketchwalk Ends at Aloha TowerPosted: November 11, 2017 Filed under: USkO | Tags: 10th anniversary, Aloha Tower, sketchwalk Leave a comment
As the Urban Sketchers chapter closest to the International Date Line, USk Oʻahu found itself in a privileged position this morning, as we staged the final leg of today’s worldwide sketchwalk in celebration of USk’s 10th anniversary. Although the weather looked less than inviting early in the day, the conditions downtown were actually quite pleasant – overcast and cool, with just the occasional drizzle. Our three-stop sketchwalk offered views of the aging Falls of Clyde (the last remaining iron-hulled four-masted ship), pub life, birds and fish, harbor activities, Aloha Tower, and of course the unavoidable backdrop of open ocean and swaying palm trees. All featured in our sketches. Taking advantage of the many sheltered spots in the area, we marked the occasion with a nice turnout (given the mildly worrisome conditions in the early morning) and lots of inspiring artwork. Happy Anniversary, USk!
