Who are these masked sketchers? September 7, 2021 Marsha McCloskey Sept. 7, 2021 – Oakway Center Courtyard We just kept gaining sketchers as the morning went on – we’re so happy to be back sketching together. And now, in order of appearance (more or less): Bill, often at the coast, is discovering the fun of water soluble fountain pen ink – nice! Jane, camera & mask in hands, sketched a photo of basil given to her by a neighbor. Jim, truly an urban sketcher, caught the interplay of building and lamp post lines. We’re enjoying having Sharon back with us, & she enjoyed the courtyard flowers. BarbSo looked over the book list Bill brought, & did a potted flower sketch, more at home. Katie made a coffee run before getting down to watercolor business – what fun! Marsha used Derwent Chromaflow pencils to get just the right leaf color. Pat was fascinated with business signs – now, how to link them on the page….hmmm… Peggy is having a blast using the vignette frames – quite a charming page altogether! Eva is getting more adept at using pastels & colored pencils to get darks – lovely sketch. Gail sketched Marsha & Pat – then she said she just gets started with dots & can’t stop! Daisy, our stand-up sketcher, sketched sketchers: Peggy, Marsha, & BarbSh. And here’s BarbSh sketching Bill & Jim – love the final touch on the page, hands on! Last, but not least, Tricia zeroed in on the hanging baskets full of blooms. Our reviews are mostly gather around and chat – how did you do that?
