Tugged and Tied

Honolulu Harbor was active this morning. Tugboats waltzed barges around, speakers blared on a recently docked cruise ship, and numerous small vessels zipped by. From our vantage point, we could see it all… including curtains of rain missing us by just a couple of city blocks.

Show-and-tell exposed us to the usual variety of styles, techniques, and sketch sizes (this week’s extreme being a smartphone!). Special themes touched upon today: speed sketching (those barges move fast… or do we sketch slowly?) and details versus sweeping strokes. Other than that, we were grateful to Darby for holding off for the duration of our event.

As always, feedback is very welcome: if you have suggestions for future locations, or ideas regarding the format of our events, please let us know!

Also, do not forget to check out the day’s sketches on Flickr – and upload yours!
