Today was our scheduled drawing day for Whidbey Sketchers. Unfortunately I arrived late to our destination, Betty Rayle's art studio at Greenbank Cellars Winery, with only 20 minutes left to draw Lisbeth, our model. She's our newest member. I brought my oil pastels, so thought I'd do a quick study.
My work, it seems, is becoming downright funky and less concerned about draftsmanship and accuracy. I used to like delicate lines but have come to enjoy strong, direct marks. It's just more fun.
Two of us then migrated to Whidbey Pies Cafe down the road to do some more sketching. And of course, pie.
Some people enjoying a late afternoon sandwich. They were discussing their passion for horses, I think.
