We have not had a lot of good sketching weather of late (my criteria: mostly sunny, minimum 60 degrees, maximum 75), but Tru and I managed to get out there twice during the past week.
On Wednesday we joined Nicole at Acacia Memorial Park to draw in their garden, which has a pond with rock gardens and little wooden bridges, a very pleasant and peaceful spot.
I tried something a bit different this time -- no ink drawing! Just watercolor plus a bit of colored pencil work.
On Sunday we joined Nicole and Tina for an outing to the Licton Springs P-Patch garden, where we admired the inscriptions people put in the bricks at the entry way.
I spotted two workers lopping branches off trees, and liked their colorful ladders, so I sketched them (the ladders, not the people -- they were moving around too much).
The teal-colored ladder stood atop the picnic table, and I managed to draw it right before one of the workers moved it away.
Next, I found a rock garden to draw.
Then we tootled down the road a few blocks to Licton Springs park, where I found a view of a stream with a log and a stone bridge.
And that was it for my sketch outings last week. Today is cool (59 high, chance of thundershowers) but there are a few nicer-looking days ahead in the forecast. We shall just have to wait and see!
