We were so pleased to retreat up into the woods at Cortesia last week in the hot weather, eager to repeat the visit, and happy to be welcomed back:
Anne joined us & was delighted to find a poppy to match her shirt. Meanwhile, Forest tells Hugh & Sandy about the property.
Erick starts sketching a tree, while Tricia and Hugh get set up, and Jane does a watercolor sketch of the glass assemblage on the table.
(You can see Anne on the other side of the table – knitting!)
Sandy and Tricia took on the glass assemblage challenge, too.
Here’s Sandy’s sketch, white gel pen on black paper.
Tricia added some background detail to her watercolor.
Hugh’s trees quickly took shape, & life with color added.
Erik’s tree outline begins to have depth & shading.
Meanwhile, someone asked Hugh & Sandy how their trip was, trekking the Camino in Spain, and out came their sketchbooks:
Here’s Sandy’s first page with an equipment sketch.
Tricia & Anne are entranced by the sketchbooks and tales of the trip.
Hugh enjoys giving Erik some highlights. Fabulous trip, fabulous stories – we’re so glad they’re back to share!
