Venture Out Nursery

Friday sketching at Venture Out Nursery.  A must see nursery located on the corner of Maxwelton and 525 in Clinton.  Here's Paula with her masterpiece of red poppies.  We sketched in the covered area that saved the day from the wind and rain. There were so many places to sketch on the grounds and the staff was so welcoming. As Sherryl would say,...."Great mojo."

Two new sketchers from Coupeville joined us and will be coming back next week.

FYI:  Next week is Maxwelton Beach and HH at my house.  Or my house for sketching if it rains.

I'm back using yupo again and posting after years.  Sue can you believe it?   It's a start.  Mary L.

Sketching at Maple Ridge

     

With the Sketchers, Friday afternoon, for a visit to Maple Ridge Retirement Community for their happy hour with saxophone music. I was early so I asked Andrea, the Langley Yoga Instructor who volunteers with the residents, if I could sketcher her amazing hair, with its multicolored dreads. She agreed to sit, which prompted one of the other residents to request her own portrait sketch. I agreed, only because I so badly need the practice of capturing faces. Also, from way across the room (so I don't really know if I "got" her or not) I sketched Kim's mama, who is a resident. 
All in all, a good sketching day - stretching my abilities.
