You should be able to use the effects in your app to adjust the colour of the image so it matched the artwork O0

Oh yes, Nolan. I ordered a A4 book with brown sheets, so that I don’t need to correct the original. 😃
Cheers, Gita

Last Saturday, some of us from the Berlin Urban sketching group went around Berlin on a 15 minute “sketchwalk”. Goal was to stop at one place every 15 minutes and start sketching. It was a sunny but very windy day. Some of us froze a bit. So, we made a pause in  Malls for warming up and sketched there, too.  :smiley6600: We sat, stood and squatted.  :o. The next time I am going to take a travel seat cushion along  ;D
Here are some 15 min. sketches. Love to hear your comments.  :D

Thank you Mary Lou! It’s amazing how much one can observe under time pressure. The writings on the first sketch was done later.
Cheers, Gita

 O0  You are getting really good at this, Gita. I like  what you have done.
Do you use your sketches as references for other  paintings?
 ;) You probably sketched outside even quicker than usual in the freezing wind.

I can’t believe you did these in 15 minutes! I wish I could sketch this well in a hurry.

Thank you, Cath!
Thank you, Emma Lee!
No, Cath, I don’t use these sketches as references and maybe you are right 😅! But, there was also this fun factor and since we passed our sketches around in the end there was also this pressure to do one’s best. There are these “not so good sketches” which I haven’t posted.  :whistle: :whistle:

Bill, I don’t do this often..   :). Once in a way, this is a nice way to keep in touch with the Berlin urban sketchers. Often, there are also Urban sketchers from other places who always get a hearty welcome and this way they get to know the city better.
Cheers, Gita
