A new kid in town rolled into our Sketcher's Group last week. She is a card carrying Urban Sketcher & she organized a group sketch excursion for us today. We went to our outdoor Farmer's Market!
This solitary sketcher, moi, loved not being alone today. At the end we each talked about our sketch/es & what we experienced. Oh, how fun to learn from other sketchers & to see through their eyes! Thank you to the group and to our leader!
A woman asked us, "Is this a class or are you all just having fun?" Struck me so funny!!
Me, being a gregarious sort, I chatted with people I knew rather than sketched some of the time. This was a sort of warm up day, as I haven't sketched for awhile. It's a rough sketch, the first in my new 81/2 by 11 inch Moleskine watercolor book (bigger than my small comfort sizes.) I prefer the paper in "Hand Book" watercolor journals, but I'm enjoying this larger size.
The Farmer's Market: Local people & tourists, a fiddling duo, flowers, cheese, breads, baskets, seedlings, vegetables, farm animal products...& lots of banter & hello's & it's so good to see you's...lots of movement, lots of walking, toddler's toddling, children swinging, breezes blowing...
