Cortesia (again) and Zoom #85

Another lovely time sketching at Cortesia. Bleu the dog was there so Monty the cat was nowhere to be seen.


Zoom #85 on Friday

Sharing the week’s work is one of the best times of the week. It also keeps us accountable.

Tricia beating the heat.

Cortesia and Zoom #84

Tuesday Top Drawers sketching was in the woods and gardens at Cortesia.

Gathering the people and the sketches.

Oakway and Zoom #83

It was Oakway again this week for in-person sketching.

Seeking shade.

Our 83rd Zoom was full of talk of the Drawing Marathon, the Hearings, and the difference between water soluble and permanent ink pens.

Oakway and Zoom #82

Beautiful weather for sketching at Oakway Mall last Tuesday. Many hats. It was fun to be outside and together.

Friday’s Zoom was well attended and filled with laughter and talk of travel, paints and papers.

From our Idaho branch, Hugh and Sandy have been sharing their sketches from their trip to Europe and some work done with their Plein Air group in Boise.

Zoom #81

The TD’s visit to Cortesia got rained out on Tuesday, but some of us we able to gather to share our week’s work on Friday Zoom . Others posted their drawings on the FB group, TD Roundtable. Rita, Danita and Jane are working with images from their recent travels. The rest of us are closer to home.

Roses Again and Zoom #80

Tuesday was for sketching at the Owen Rose Garden. The weather was perfect and the ambient aroma of roses was lovely.

Zoom #79

We didn’t meet in person on Tuesday because of the January 6 Hearings being held in our time slot (how rude!). The assignment was to watch the hearing on TV and draw the faces. As nothing in this group is obligatory, a variety of images were created for the Friday Zoom session. Danita is beginning to share her work from their trip to the Southwest. Rita and Bitty, though they didn’t show up for Zoom have been sharing their travel sketches on the TD Roundtable on FaceBook.

Rita: from her European travels
Bitty: Image from Iceland

Sketching in June with the Top Drawers

Tuesday, June 7, we were at the Owen Rose Garden again — simply a beautiful day. Sketching and sharing.

(Tuesday, June 14, we attempted to sketch at Hendricks Park, but it was overrun with graduation celebrations. )
