The Northend Sketchers (Tina, Nicole and I) arrived quite early to snag a prime parking spot. It was raining, so we tried drawing from inside the car -- here is what I could see of the front porch:
The interior was full of fabulous views and decor -- here you can see some sketchers staking out their spots.
I headed upstairs, where I found the master bedroom -- it was better lit than the rest of the home, and hardly anyone was in there, so I sat down on a window seat to sketch a small section of it.
Then I roamed around exploring the rest of the home, looking for another spot where I could find both something to draw, and a place to sit where I wouldn't be in anyone else's way.
I found a spot on one side of the main hallway, looking back through it into the main living area, where Tina sat drawing the fireplace.
It was a very complex scene and took me the rest of the time we had there. A fine outing at a truly beautiful location.
Here is a report from one of the group leaders over on the urban sketcher blog--you can spot me in the last photo on the stairs at the bottom with the lamp light glowing on my face:
