I picked out the support for the net as my first sketch of the day. I was in a rather dark corner so I had to use my iPod Touch as a flashlight for some of the painting!
It was a rather funky setting. There were all sorts of interesting furniture, sculpture and things on the walls. My second sketch was a set of skulls.
And here I learned a valuable lesson. This was the first page of a sketchbook I bound myself. Always try the paper first. I did not. I just trusted the advice and recommendation of an instructor that this would be a good paper to use for a watercolor travel journal. The paint was hard to control, it feathered and it absorbed too much. I had to put about 3 layers in the darkest areas.
I have one more sketch I started before “time” was called so we could meet and share. Rather than go back after to finish, I will do so at home.
Here is an arrangement of mirrors on the wall of another room. There were a lot of mirrors in that room. A couple acrobats can be see reflected in the mirrors.
Here are some photos I took of the sketchers and the trapeze students.
