The “Friday Sketchers” ad hoc outing was to sketch at Wintergrass, a local bluegrass festival.  There certainly was a lot of jamming in the hall ways!

One of the people leaving this jam session looked at my sketch and said, “oh, that’s a good likeness of Ian.  He’s an old beatnik”.  I was pleased she could recognize him!

My first sketch of the day…. a concertina player in the lobby playing by himself.  He got up and moved but I had enough done that I could finish it.

Bass player in a jam session…. just drew her.

Here’s the group!

L to R:  Gordon, me, Angie, Lynn, John, Tina, Francisco, Rachel, Wanda (a friend of mine visiting from Portland).  Angie and her father, Francisco, were new today!  Welcome!

    Great sketches, Kate! The bass player in braids… I sketched her from the back!

    I like the group pic with all the sketchbooks. It looks like so much fun.

      Thanks. Sharing sketches at the end of an outing together and then a group photo are the standard practices of Urban Sketchers groups. It is a lot of fun to meet, get to know and go out sketching with other people.

        The city limit sign coming into town says “Population 264.” I think I will have to wander further afield for something cool like this. Thanks for sharing your day out. 🙂
