Come and Sketch When You Can!

5th St. Market, Eugene, OR

We’ve always been a little loose about our sketching schedule – we start at about “9-ish” we say. But people come when they can, late or early due to conflicting schedules, and we’re happy they’re here!

1     1.5     2Today started with a reminder of Barb Sh’s giant sloth sketch from the Museum of Natural History and Culture – remember? We all wondered how she’d resolve running out of paper – ta dah!

3    4Then the five of us in the first “shift” started sketching the red cyclamen Jane brought along – here’s Jane’s preliminary sketch with Barb So and Erik, and Barb Sh and Sandy getting color down.

BarbSo-1    BarbSo-2Barb So finished her ink sketch and added her signature light watercolor, much to everyone’s satisfaction.

Erik-1        Erik-2Erik borrowed Barb Sh’s Derwent Inktense pencil, then experimented with using Jane’s waterbrush pen to bring out color.

BarbSh-1    BarbSh-2Barb Sh demonstrates her technique with the Inktense pencils, using a waterbrush with just the right amount of water – from her tongue!

Jane-red cyclamenJane gave up on putting her cyclamen in a pot. Here it is.

Penelope-1     Peneope-2Then the next shift arrived – Penelope with her late breakfast, which she dutifully began to sketch. Fast on her heels came Barb A and Ken, who claimed they came just in time for the critique!
