Lawrence Sketch Crawl

We had our second sketch crawl yesterday. This time at the Eldridge Hotel on Mass Street in Lawrence. This town has so much history, and this hotel is no exception. Wish the walls could talk. In its 150 years it had been burnt down by the sheriff (pro-slavery sheriff didn't like the free-state owner), then by Quantrill. Three different investment parties. It keeps on ticking.

There were five of us sketchers. My tools are fountain pen and watercolor pencils with waterbrush. Others either use watercolor or stick with pencil sketching. Nice variety.

  1. Thanks for posting your sketch John, really nice (and you have great handwriting too!). I was seriously considering attending but the drive was just too far for just a few hours. I spent the weekend sketching closer to home. Again, thanks for sharing an image from the event.
