#22 TD Zoom – so much going on! And we’re going with it.
Marsha, Jane, Danita, Bitty, Daisy, Barb So., Bev, Laura, Hugh.
Barb So. has such a light joyous approach to her sketches this spring.
Bev always has a way to make simple things from home be special.
From closeups to landscapes sketched during a zoom presentation, Bitty is having a wonderful time sketching.
Daisy did another recipe sketch for a novel, a 2 page spread to celebrate the expedition to Mars, and the traditional field kit sketch.
Danita’s on a horticulture exploration, and we sure enjoy it!
Hugh’s artist eye serves him well in sketches from near and far.
Jane can always be diverted by flowers, but coffee & a Danish-yes!
Marsha’s been preoccupied with installing a new computer, but her tulips still snared her for yet another lovely loose sketch.
Sandy’s been too busy to get to our Zoom meeting, but not to sketch.
Rita & husband are off on an exploration, which she’s busy recording.
#21 TD Zoom Meeting – it’s SPRING!
Marsha, Jane, Danita, Bev, BarbSo, Daisy, Hugh, Sandy, Laura.
Laura uses both sides of the pages in her sketchbook, and primarily works in colored pencil. The amaryllis is stunning!
Sandy has gotten into sketching couples she finds on her walks, and has devoted one sketchbook solely to bird couples!
Hugh continues to explore with his use of water soluble inks, but has also made a commitment to do at least one digital sketch a week.
Daisy was rightfully proud of her sketch of the bubbling rock fountain at Hendricks Park – great job!
Barb So sketched her dog in the hyacinths, took a class on direct to watercolor for portraits, and drew a cheerful bird in her yard. Nice!
Bev is stretching herself – first a bridge detail, then playing with circles (what fun that turned out to be!), and a lovely camellia.
Danita loves native plants – hence the trillium and the Oregon grape, she also worked roses into a wreath technique from a zoom class.
Jane’s double page spreads are quite different from each other. She seems to be spreading her wings in trying out new techniques.
Just when you think you’ll never get water soluble ink away from Marsha, she surprises you with a watercolor then ink sketch! Wow.
#20 TD Zoom – busy, busy, busy!
Marsha, Jane, Danita, Laura, Bitty, Bev, Daisy, Hugh, Rita, Sandy.
A cluster of rocks caught Marsha’s eye, and she had a wonderful time playing with them. Then she did a zoom meeting sketch. Fun!
Reflections of Jane’s experience in the Sketchbook Design class can be seen in her sketching – lots more text, use of headings, & dates.
Here are several of Danita’s pieces inspired by Sketchbook Revival – the 2 page spreads show how page one developed into an art piece!
Laura enjoyed Sketchbook Revival, too – lovely watercolor sketches of such diverse topics and techniques. We enjoyed seeing her work.
Bitty had wonderful work to show from our outing at Hendrick’s Park, and then a quick delightful sketch of folks eating a Tacovore.
Bev is getting outside to sketch in Brookings. You can sure see her design background in the way she develops her pages – terrific!
Daisy didn’t waste wait time at the vaccine clinic – sketching it of course! Then a wet-on-wet tulip, & whimsical owl from SR.
Hugh’s really on a roll exploring his water soluble inks – fast & fun! He’s such a great role model for diving into an art exploration.
Rita’s a Sketchbook Revival aficionado, too, finding inspirational quotes, collage with pockets, and fun with mark making. Love it.
You can tell where Sandy goes on her walks, because she’s busy playing Urban Sketcher, with such interesting life captures. Nice!
