AAU, San Francisco'da Yaz Mekan Çizimi Dersim (Bölüm 1: Powell Street)

This summer I am excited to be teaching Location Drawing and Painting for Academy of Art University, San Francisco. My students and I will be sketching and painting at points of interest all over town and even in the East Bay. Everyone starts with a brand new sketchbook and will fill at least 100 pages with […]

BART grevi, SF Körfez Bölgesi

With the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) workers strike going into its second day, commuters need to find alternate means of transportation to get around and to cross the bay. Here at the ferry terminal at Jack London Square, beneath the giant cranes of the Port of Oakland, we are standing in line waiting to […]

Gary Amaro, a correspondent Berkery, California visited Japan with his girlfriend Anandamayi. We met in Tokyo and my sketch friends TETSU and Junichi later joined us and we had sketch session.

sketchcrawl 39: mendocino county, ca

  I usually post with the San Francisco group for sketchcrawl, but this time instead I went to Comptche in Mendocino County to visit my friend, the potter Nick Schwartz for what may be the last firing of the anagama, or woodfire kiln, at its current location at Flynn Creek Pottery. Shown here with my sketch is ceramicist […]

election day

Election day in Berkeley, California. I had been studying the issues just fine, but for some reason I never got around to looking up where my polling place was until the morning of the election, only to find that this time my precinct had no polling place at all and that I had to mail […]

sketchcrawl 36: san francisco

Beautiful day for a sketchcrawl in San Francisco. We met in the morning under the shining steel “Raygun Gothic Rocketship” along Embarcadero, just down from the Ferry Building. There was a pretty good turnout and the sun came out so strong after a cloudy start that I got quite burned sitting sketching. Here are passengers […]

kirmizi toprak ülkesi̇

Cousins reunion at the ranch, Amador County. Arriving at 10:00, I help Steve and Harry fence the new chicken run with wire, fence pliers, and Tom’s homemade fence stretcher. They’ve been at it since 7:00 and are ready to quit soon, as it is getting hot already, and, besides, brunch is on. Sara has made […]

sketchcrawl 35: north beach, san francisco

The San Francisco group meandered this time along Columbus Street through North Beach. I arrived late in the day, having spent the morning at a map sale at UCBerkeley across the bay. Caught up with some of the sketchers at Washington Square park and eventually made my way to the Holiday Inn at Fisherman’s Wharf […]

sketchcrawl 34: the ferry building, san francisco

It seemed like it was going to rain all day so we decided to meet in the Ferry Building in SF where we could have plenty to draw if we needed to stay indoors. The weather turned out to be a little better than that, however, and I managed to sketch outside some too. Here […]

sketchcrawl 33: san francisco

San Francisco'daki bu son sketchcrawl için şaşırtıcı derecede küçük bir katılım oldu. Haight bölgesinde çizim yaptık. Burada Cole'daki Crepes'in cephesinin bir kısmına bakan ve yerel mimaride çok yaygın olan kulelerden birini içeren bir görünüm var. Bunlar elektrik direğindeki güvercin karşıtı önlemler. Kafenin dışında oturanlar [...]
