Marché Café, Jordan Schnitzer Art Museum, UO Campus
Even though the red umbrellas cast a ruddy color on our paper, we were grateful for the shade in the sunny courtyard, as well as for Henry the Pug, who cheerfully posed for us:
Sandy and Erik look on as Henry’s owner enjoys his morning coffee.
Sandy does several preliminary sketches of the dog, then gives herself a break by sketching Erik, and then Henry comes to life!
Anne Teigen found another dog in the courtyard to draw, and Satoko Motouji started sketching people as well as the dog Henry.
Anne said she was looking for painting inspiration in her sketch; Jane was just happy to get that curly tail and pug nose captured.
Tricia starts with the dog owner, and then sketches Henry in several doggy poses – he is a cutie, for sure!
Penelope shows Satoko her new sketchbook – but will the ink bleed? NO! Oh boy, another sketching tool to add to the collection!
Penelope shows the sketch she did in a colorful garden, and Jane shows her “completed” sketch page from last week at Barry’s.
Penelope shared information about the upcoming class she’s teaching at Oregon Art Supply – yay for encouraging sketching!
Meanwhile, what are Erik & Jane’s grandson Alex up to? Erik is fascinated by the sculpture across the courtyard in the bamboo, and Alex is fascinated by doing Erik’s name in calligraphy!
