Sketchcrawl day in Lorient

Last Saturday, I went to Lorient, another city in Brittany, to attend the 53rd Worldwide Sketchcrawl! 😃

We were very lucky with the weather, as we were able to enjoy a beautiful sunny day on this 22nd October! ☺️☀️
It was really nice to meet all the other sketchers. There are quite a few that I already know, now, as we met in several Breton cities for some Sketchcrawls or sketching meetings. This is really friendly! 😊

 

For a good start, in the morning, we found a sunny spot in a lovely square, with some nice houses from the thirties.
I especially liked the shadow casted on the wall but, at last, I really liked sketching the whole scene (btw : the house really was blue).
I am especially happy with the way I managed to add the windows wet in wet. 😌😝😊 And with the granulations. 😉

I was inspired, too, by painting this sketcher in a strong back light, as Hazel Soan does in this video. 😉
I like the urban sketching feeling this addition gives to the page.
