No time for chit-chat, we’re sketching!

Oakway Mall Courtyard, Eugene, OR

What a busy group! Sandy, Laura (under umbrella), Pat with Marsha beyond her, Hugh in the bushes in back, Katie, Peggy, Barb Sh, Tricia.

      Glimpses of the action – Barb Sh, Katie; Peggy, Marsha, Katie, Sandy; Marsha & Laura.  We never get too busy to check on one another!

      Barb Sh was so busy sketching the group of sketchers, she sketched them twice – one with her left hand, the other with her dominant.

      Hugh might have seemed above it all, but he took precautions when folks drew near, and enjoyed the perspective from his perch.

      Jane’s sketch was quite a departure for her – a pencil sketch of the architecture, then a brush pen, and then the duck got some color!

      We’ve missed Katie, but you can see what she’s been doing if you take a look at her sketchbook! Look at her sketches at the bottom.

      I almost missed Laura in the shade of the shelter – she picked up where she left off last week, adding more little vignettes around her.

      Marsha had a productive day – a sketch of  Barb Sh seated on the wall post, one of a couple at a nearby table, & one of Sandy, below.

      We were happy to have Pat back with us. She recently got a book she had given to a departed friend, & enjoyed sketching from it.

      Peggy is so quiet – what’s she up to? Sketching another pot of flowers in the courtyard, but she didn’t like their pot, so…nice!

      Sandy was sketching sketchers, too – here’s her ink sketch, then she added color when she got home. It makes a difference, she said.

      Tricia is a big picture kind of gal, and she didn’t mind staying awhile to get it all down – look at the size of that brush, and what she does!

      Finished sketches layed out for show & tell – Barb Sh’s two versions, Hugh, Pat, and Katie.

      Laura, Marsha’s sketch of Sandy (art prompt: graceful), Peggy.

Sandy’s second sketch of the sketchers, color added, too. Sweet.

One thought on “No time for chit-chat, we’re sketching!”

  1. Thank you, Jane – you always capture all the action so perfectly! It feels so good to be sketching together again and exploring the summer ambiance of Eugene.
