Sketching Djangofest 2017

A beautiful day for sketching the musicians playing in Langley at the Commons and at Useless Bay Coffee. All three of these were finished in a rush as the musicians broke up and left before I was done. The music was fantastic!

I'll miss you!

Despite early rain, it turned out to be an amazingly nice day at Cap Sante Marina. We had a great turnout, and it's always so much fun to join with the Anacortes sketchers too.

Thank you all for coming up to Anacortes and for adding Buddy Art to the last page to my boat journal. Never goodbye, just see y'all later!
Buddy Art created as we ate dinner at Anthony's
Paula and I went shopping yesterday and got masking fluid and a few new Daniel Smith colors

SKETCHING IN A RETRO "JAPANESE MODERN" HOME

We met at Sketcher Annette's unique and lovely early era Japanese Modern style home overlooking the Sound at Mutiny Bay. The view is extraordinary from her decks, and we all settled in comfortably in cozy deck chairs at tables. The spectacular, the view didn't appeal to me as much as did the exotic decorative pieces around the home. This golden rooster, one of a pair of handsome fighting roosters, especially caught my eye. I paired it up with a gilded imari bowl from a different room. Perfect together!
Fellow sketcher Judith lent me use of her neat set of gold watercolors, which made this guy really crow!
