Sketching at Greenbank Store
We, of Whidbey Island Sketchers, had a wonderful day sketching at the Greenbank Cafe and Store. The cafe is in a loft that overlooks the store, allowing one a birds eye view of the goods below. The whole place is full of drawings to be done with it's friendly old country funk, wrought iron and wood staircase, and well worn creaky floors. The decorative antique wood stove downstairs was a great piece to center on so it was a must to include. I began in the cafe with a little black and white drawing fully intending to look over the railing down onto the store to sketch, but didn't get to it. All in all, it was a great day of drawing, and meeting new and interesting people.
