Yesterday I joined the Sketchcrawl in Gouda.

Sketchcrawl is a global drawing marathon, initiated by Enrico Casarosa. He figured out that sketching on location can be even more interesting when you do it with a group of artists, instead of alone. It's inspiring to share and compare sketches and thoughts. He decided to make a world wide event of his group sketchcrawls: having people from different corners of the world join in a day of sketching and journaling and then, thanks to the Internet, having everyone share the results on an online forum.
Go here to read all about it if you're interested.
On the last Sketchcrawl date me and Yvonne gathered a small group in Amsterdam. This time we joined the well organized group in Gouda.

The weather was dreadful. It was raining cats and dogs and it was cold! That was quite a disappointment, because Gouda is beautiful, and it would've been nice if we could have captured some of the character of the town.
So we sat down at the long reading table downstairs in the museum of Gouda and started drawing there. It was kind of dark in there, a bit chilly, and there wasn't much to see. So we drew things that were on the table. It was quite hilarious, because when someone was taking a candy from the bowl on the table, someone else would protest, as he was just drawing it. Empty cups couldn't be cleared from the table either.

I combined the sketchcrawl with #3 of the EveryDay Matters Challenge List (which can be found here): I drew my pencil pouch.
