Looking Out at 5th St. Market

5th St. Market, Eugene, OR

    We’d hoped to be outside, but the weather is being erratic, so we’re back at out favorite window inside 5th St. Market.

    Barb So took a photo of one of the outside planters to help her get details straight. It’s nice to have that as an assist.

      Bev captured two scenes our the windows, and then brought colors over from one page to the other so that they were integrated.

    Daisy succumbed to the giant croissant au chocolate, but had the wisdom to cut it in half and get busy sketching it! Good choice.

      Danita’s sketch demonstrates  developmental steps, going from pencil to watercolor, to ink, and paying attention to contrasts.

      Helga was sketching from a photo, and did a great job of getting depth with darks and lights. Where’d that roofline come from???

     Jane was feeling rattled by a phone call, but sketching what was in front of her without overthinking it brought her out of the dumps.

       Ken came later in the morning and sure made up for lost time!

        Fun to see Laura’s sketch burst into full color – she said she had some helpful advice from Daisy in getting the colors to pop. It worked!

      It’s always so interesting to see Lona build her sketches – pencil sketch lines, then loose watercolors bring it to life. (Love that pot!)

       And Marsha is becoming the queen of the colored pencils! She keeps  a light hand and a sharp point, bringing in colors that make it sing.
