In Two Places at Once!

Mt. Angel Abbey, & Perugino’s in Eugene – thanks to technology!

1-Penelope-car    2-BarbA,Pene,JaneThe idea was to go up to Mt. Angel Abbey to see the Valley Calligraphy Guild show – here we are in process, as seen by Penelope’s sketch from the back seat, and the three of us in a selfie in front of a piece of art – Barb A., Penelope, & Jane.

And then we got a text from the Eugene contingent at Perugino’s!

3-PeruginoHeidi, Sandy, & Jan, loving the immediacy of sketching in town. (We also got a text from Erik, who was even more immediate, at home!)

5-a-Heidi    5-b-Heidi'sHeidi is still enjoying exploring colored pencil – look at the depth!

6-1-Sandy     6-Sandy'sSandy is using colored pencil, too – look at the color richness here!

7-Pene,Barb-viewing    8-Pene-sketchMeanwhile, back at the Abbey, Penelope & Barb A are entranced by the art work in the calligraphy show, & Penelope copied a quote.

9-Jane-Mt Angel Gift Store    10-Jane-Mt Angel ChurchJane did a quick sketch in the Abbey gift shop, and then in the church where they heard a sung service (she later explored using the Pitt white marker pen with water brush for light around the crucifix).

11-a-Barb-photo   11-b-Barb-finalBarb was entranced by the architecture and sculptures, but got in a quick sketch during the church service, too. Nice style contrast.

12-a-Pene-sketches       12-b-Pene-finalIt’s interesting to see how Penelope’s sketchbook page developed, with little vignettes which captured the whole experience.  Well, except for lunch, and the performance at the Glockenspiel:
