Look what the sun brought out!

New Day Bakery (in their lovely redesigned courtyard), Eugene, OR

    And they just kept coming! Jean, Erik, Hugh, Ken, Sandy, Barb Sh at first, then from the other end are Barb Sh, Tricia, Penelope, Sandy, Lealan, Jean, Erik, Hugh, Jan, Ken, & Satoko (Jane behind camera).

      Barb Sh needed a hat in all this sun, so she sketched Erik in his! Oh, that water soluble ink – love the effect of it!

       Erik & Sandy appreciated having their hats – can you tell what this is, Erik says….oh, a seagull! Of course.

        Sandy experimented with woodless colored pencils on black paper – it was dramatic, but she didn’t care for the light paper weight.

       Jean came prepared for the bright sun, and tried a simpler focus than the garden she did last time – with water brush exploration, too.

      Hugh was undaunted by the garden, however – see how fast it “grew” in his sketchbook, clear across two pages!

      Jane tried to capture a customer waiting for delivery of her order at  a nearby table. A friend asked, will you sell that to the cafe? Uh, no.

     Tricia chats a bit with Sandy, then tackles a loose approach to flowers in the courtyard, a different style than she usually does.

      Ken enjoyed deepening the colors for the iris in the garden, but then he also enjoyed recapping his presentation of Erik’s art show for Jan.

      “This is the last piece of art I did,” said Jan, who has been busy with distracting tasks. Then she went about testing her marker viability.

       Lealan and Satoko have both been out of town for awhile, but quickly got back into the spirit of sketching. Welcome back!

        Penelope was about to leave town to meet her new grandbaby, but stopped by to share her sketchbook & online course idea provoker.
