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!
