It has been a while since I organized the last exchange and it seems like it well past time for another. So here we are with sketch exchange number 3. In the second sketch exchange we had 24 people from 11 countries that exchanged sketches. Everyone sent me their addresses, I mixed them up and sent everyone a send to address and deadline. The exchange is set up so that you do not know from whom you will receive a sketch. It is a nice surprise!
If you are interested then post here, once we have a good number signed up, at least 20 I will begin the process of getting things going. Please understand there is some risk in participating while I do my best to make sure all exchanges are completed I can’t make guarantees, and with that when you sign up you are making a commitment to get your sketch in the mail, it is only fair. I am going to set a maximum of 100 participants for this exchange.
I have been really interested in the idea of small adventures in sketching, so I would like to make this exchange of a small series of at least 3 sketches that demonstrate or show a small adventure example of this idea might be 3 sketches showing the view at 3 places on a path or road.

As the discussion page is a bit hidden with the new Flickr I do hope that if you are interested you will help try to spread the word, with the people following you. The more people we get the more interesting it becomes.

Alright looks like we 31 people interested in an exchange. I am contacting everyone on the list to collect address that I will re-disperse. I am using Flickr mail so that address remain private and are only shared with the individual you are mailing too.
Sketches can be made specifically for the exchange or pulled from your books. I think we should keep the size a minimum 3.5"x5.5” and a maximum of 9"x12". The theme is small adventures, and you can use up to 3 sketches to illustrate the idea. Your sketches can be in any media watercolor, pen,or pencil.

Please respond with your address by Saturday March 15.

Even if you have already given me your address please send, just as a means of confirmation. I will gather the addresses and redistribute by March 22nd. At that time I will give a two week mailing deadline.

I am excited and hope all goes well!
If you still wish to participate, contact me via flickrmail by Saturday March 15.

Deb, you should send it to me through Flickr mail. I sent you an flickr mail request it should appear in your activity page or on the buddy icon on the upper right side of your flickr photo stream page. It seems the best way without announcing your address to the world.

I have sent everyone their send to address so here we go! This time around we have 32 individuals involved representing 13 countries. Switzerland, Spain, Germany, Australia, Costa Rica, France, China, Denmark, US, Italy, and the UK. That is very cool! I am pretty excited, and I hope that you are as well. This should be fun! Please have your sketches in the mail by Monday March 31st. After you have mailed your image go ahead and post them to urban sketchers and place a link in the discussion, don't say where their going, just post them. It would be appreciated marketing for further exchanges if you titled them as part of the exchange. Look forward to the post! Thanks for participating.

An adventure with bike from Bern to the Sensegraben, and by foot, discovering spring. Arriving soon many miles away.

In the shadow, the earth was frozen.
sensegraben 1403 1 kl by barbaragrün

They enjoy the sun and spring too. But they were very shy: We waited long, until they came up to the surface again, and sketched from rather far away.
sensegraben 1403  2 kl by barbaragrün

My inner critic is much stronger when I draw for others. So after the frogs that where fascinating but too fast, I needed something nice that doesnt move while I draw.

What is a little adventure? Here in Costa Rica pretty much everything, but it is so hard to pin it down with a pen!
My first try was this view of a Starbucks Coffeeshop in Moravia - not much of an adventure I know, but somehow I liked the idea of having so many different countries all in one cup! Adventure without travelling.

Then I observed those small children climbing on a fake lizard and fake crocodile at an Indoor Playground at 10 am on a weekday. Must have felt like a little adventure to them!

Restaurante Chubascos, Volcan Poas, Alajuela, Costa Rica by crclapiz

It's always a small adventure to visit Poas volcano: you could arrive and the volcano is errupting (as happened to friends of ours) or you could be stranded to spend the night because all streets are burst after a major earthquake (another friend and her visiting guests), although that would not count as a small adventure, anymore. Anyway, today's visit brought us back alive and unharmed, very fortunate for the recipient of this drawing.
I drew while lunching at Chubascos Restaurant, one of my favorite country side places: fresh mountain air (ca. 2000m altitude), rustic interior and very good food. The weather was bright and sunny, and the clouds bringing "chubascos" (misty cool rain showers) came in only as we were leaving to go home.

The walk to Shelly Beach, Manly by Chantal V.

The Bower, Manly by Chantal V.

On their way overseas today - 2 sketches of the walk from Manly to Shelly Beach. A rather subdued adventure, but a very beautiful pathway. I did have the company of 2 water dragons (lizards) when I sketched The Bower cafes. I think I may have been sitting on their favourite rock and they waited patiently for me to move on.

My drawing will fly away on Monday morning. I drew it today, sitting under a bridge in the rain. The first rain of the year. Venturing out with a few fisherman, a pod of dolphins and a poor guy whose car was parked next to mine and had a hole where the passenger window used to be and a pile of glass on the road.

Moreover, the sketch is part of the country, with the stamp and the accompanying drawings. I have never been to Turkey, but when I think of that country, I always will think with Ahid face. And, yes, it's true, I usually talk in Catalan, the language of my country. Kisses
