Is this a class? Uh, no, we just like to sketch together!

5th St. Market, downstairs, Eugene, OR

     Some people come by just to say hello even if they don’t have time to sketch with us, but here are the folks in action: Sandy, Barb So, Barb Sh, Daisy, Marsha, Hugh, and at the other table were Erik, Lona, & Ken.  Jane’s behind the camera, and Satoko and Marsha stopped by.

      Hugh started it off with a blueberry Danish, & Sandy joined in. Hugh is enjoying his black toned paper sketchbook.

    Hugh even started another sketch of the pastry before he ate it, and here’s Sandy proudly showing her finished sketch to us.

      Jane was inspired by the pastry, too – a Kouign-Amann!

       Barb So started on the pastry, too, then remembered to show us eclipse glasses she’d sketched, and added toenail polish to her foot.

          Barb Sh quickly sketched a fellow across the room tasting wine. She uses a water soluble brown ink, then touches it with the waterbrush. And then Lealan sneaked in and started sketching Barb!

         Daisy started by sketching what was in front of her, and ended by doing a chart to show how her watercolor pencils will hide or reveal the color beneath them when touched with the waterbrush.

         Marsha brought a photo along as her inspiration, and look how that sketch evolved – pencil, pen, and colored pencil. Lovely!

        Erik chatted with Sandy before sitting down at the next table with Lona, and sketching his view of patterns out the window!

          Lona captured a vibrant display she saw as she walked in, and when I exclaimed, she said, “you have to show what it took to get there!”

And here’s what it took for Lona to finish her sketch – wow!

        Ken choose the pear tart, and here’s the payoff for completion!

       Meanwhile, behind the scenes, Barb Sh. was sharing her fabulous unfolding comic sketchbook story about her trip to Italy to Ken, Satoko, and Lealan. We all loved her production – way to go!
