Dec. 12, 2021, 5th St. Market
Jane, our webmaster, just got out of brain surgery in time to bring her son Sean along to sketch with the group! Apologies for a spacier report than usual, mostly stolen from Facebook photos by Peggy! Thanks.
Almost all of us there: Sean, Jane, Marsha, Daisy, Erik, Laura
Such a delight to have Erik back, & going into watercolor.
Daisy got a view across the room – such charm.
Eva was at the next table, having fun with iridescent paints.
Gail en;oys playing with pointillism. (is that how you spell it?)
Jane was so happy to be withh her son Sean – not a lot of sketching, though.
Jim H. reallly.eally got caught up in the colorful detail around us.
Marsha was just glad to be there – time for a sketch break.
Laura had some great fingerless gloves to keep her fingers nimble.
Lynda decided people were too difficult to draw, so chose CHAIRS! ACK!
When Peggy wasn’t running around taking photos, she sketched decorations.
Sean tried his mom’s framing format, and WATERCOLOR! You go, guy!
Dec. 7, 2021, Market of Choice, Eugene, OR
Nearly all of us – Katie & Richard, Eva & Laura, Gail, Barb Sh, Marsha, Channing, Danita, Jim, Bill (Jane behind the camera, Hugh & Sandy in Idaho!)
Jim & Bill welcome Richard. Bill’s sketches, Jim’s. Wonder if Hugh & Sandy are sketching?
And here came a text from Hugh & Sandy, sketching at Albertsons in Meridian, Idaho!
Katie introduces newcomer Richard to Jim, BIll, BarbSh, then adds to her sketch – wow!
BarbSh is always gracious in sharing her process – water soluble ink, water brush! Wow.
Oh look! Colette’s joined us, finishing her hand painted Christmas cards – simply lovely.
Laura’s at her table, too, taking a distance view from the loft to the ceiling of the market!
Marsha, across from her, starts doing portraits. Empty space? Add more portraits!
Eva looks around, & starts portraits, too – now what? Maybe you’re done, said Jane.
Gail has yet another perspective to draw the people in front of her – adding colored pencil.
Channing uses a sharpened stick dipped in oak gall, & watercolor on the downstairs view.
Danita chats with Marsha, then does a low cal version of the baked good downstairs!
Jane ran around with camera in hand, did a line sketch, then started to watercolor.
Richard, a sketchbook novice, gets materials & strategies info from the crew. Nice sketch!
