Sketching together in the garden

Carolyn R. has recently moved here and even more recently joined the email group for Urban Sketchers Seattle. I moderate requests and started a conversation with her, especially because she lives near me.

She hasn’t yet gone on a USk sketch outing so I invited her to go out with me today. We waited until it warmed up in the afternoon and the sky cleared a little. I suggested Soos Creek Botanical Garden as it was fairly close.

We enjoyed a pleasant afternoon sketching, talking about sketching and just soaking up the natural environment in the garden.

Here’s her not quite finished sketch and our selfie “group” photo!

I focused on the bird sculpture in the lily pad pond.

We have some plans to go out again and to carpool to upcoming USk outings.  It’s nice to have a new sketching friend who lives so close to me!

    Kt was lovely for both of you to have the opportunity to meet with other sketchers . USK is a great way of finding others sketchers in a town or city. It looks like you had a lovely day and I can see why you both wanted to draw the sculpture. I look forward to more
