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!
Today 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!
Then 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.
Barb So finished her ink sketch and added her signature light watercolor, much to everyone’s satisfaction.
Erik borrowed Barb Sh’s Derwent Inktense pencil, then experimented with using Jane’s waterbrush pen to bring out color.
Barb Sh demonstrates her technique with the Inktense pencils, using a waterbrush with just the right amount of water – from her tongue!
Jane gave up on putting her cyclamen in a pot. Here it is.
Then 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!
