8/28/15 Notes to Myself: Trying new things this week in the realm of "plein air". I recently learned that a group known as the "Urban Sketcher's" is coming to Princeton tomorrow. Having no idea what this was a friend hooked me up with their web link. As it turns out this is the New Jersey division of an international group of "urban sketcher's". Urban Sketcher's www.urbansketchers.org is a world wide group that promotes "seeing the world one drawing at a time". Their mission statement: "Our mission is to raise the artistic, storytelling and educational value of on-location drawing, promoting its practice and connecting people around the world who draw on location where they live and travel." Tomorrows adventure will include capturing the landscape and architecture of downtown Princeton. This will include sketching on the University campus. In preparation I purchased a small sketch pad of 140 lb. watercolor paper to paint on. To keep it simple I plan to work in acrylics instead of oils.
