Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

A gorgeous night for a baseball game - and our team even won! My 20 minute sketch (above, in pen, 5" x 7") inspired my brother to give this 20 minute sketching thing a try. (His sketch below). He is certainly no novice to sketching, but had never tried a timed sketch before. Pretty good, right?

You can see how, even though we were sitting right next to each other, there are some interesting differences in perspective and detail. Regardless, we both successfully captured the essence of the stadium, the fans, and most of all, the game in progress. I highly encourage anyone to try sketching for 20 minutes, you never know what you can accomplish. It makes the time fly by!

  1. I find this idea riveting! I'm looking at them on my phone right now but can't wait to make a more detailed visual comparison on a computer monitor!
