Urban Sketch Group Waterfront

Our 2nd excursion with the Urban Sketch Group.
A Hometown, Downhome day, on our waterfront. 
We didn't need to wander far from town for this pleasure.

I sat in the protective shade of the Gazebo, 
on a blue sea breeze, sun filled cloudless day.
 My warm up drawing (not shown here)
 was of two cabin cruisers, 
an interesting challenge in perspective & proportion, 
but in the end not a scene that moved me.

Two of us stayed on,after the group was done 
& "fell to" silently, drawing & painting, 
separate but in good company. 
We talked about our attraction to water 
& how lucky we are to be here.


  1. Ahhhhh, bellissima! I feel your contentment. xx

  2. Dear Rita I can feel your joy in both of these sketches. I love to sit near the water as well...a lake, a river, a spring and sometimes the ocean. God Bless you for sharing. Hugs!

  3. I love them both but especially the water scene. Lots of energy in that water!

  4. I'll always remember that day and your words and lovely sketch are wonderful.


Thank you for your comments! They mean a lot to me!
