New Day Bakery, Eugene, OR –
Several of us were just back from a sketch tour of Italy, so we had old things to show, new things to explore together.
Rita joined us (from the Italy tour), Ken was in teaching interaction form, then Barb Sommers, Erik, Amy (from the Watershed Gallery), Barb Shirk (& Jane behind the camera as usual, with folks yet to come: Sandy, Barb A, & Hugh).
Barb S came with art samples from the Italy trip (snail special!)
Amy was just getting back into sketching, so Ken brought in some leaves for messing about, which Jane doodled with, too.
And while Amy was caught up in the teachable moment, Erik proceeded to capture her hands in painting action!
Barb Shirk revisited images from the Italy trip, while Barb Sommers sketched & painted what was in front of her.
Hugh showed up in time to appreciate some of Barb So’s work, and Barb A showed up in time to get welcome hugs from Sandy.
While Ken conferred with Rita about photos from Italy, Barb A started her own version of the pumpkin & leaf.
Then Sandy took a picture of the interesting sunflower stock Rita found & is sketching, then she did her own take on it.
And just to show that sketchers never quit, and that everything in front of them is fair game, here’s Sandy with her sketch of Erik!
