Sketching Workshop

Sketching for Pleasure
February 5-26
Saturdays, 10am–12pm

Sketching on location is a wonderful way to document your life and experiences. Your sketchbook is a place for personal expression, an evolving work of art that's uniquely your own. In this workshop we'll cover some drawing and painting basics such as quick sketch techniques, perspective, light and shadow along with exploring a variety of tools and mediums like watercolor, ink line and pencil. This is a fun workshop where we'll meet briefly in class, then venture out painting and drawing at various local venues. You'll enhance your appreciation for the world around you while developing your own voice and confidence in drawing.

Useless Bay Coffee and Lunch

Ahhhh. It's always a pleasure to get together with my sketcher friends for an afternoon of sketching. We met at the Unitarian Church in Freeland for a small reception of our Whidbey Island Sketchers group show, then went to Useless Bay Coffee for sketching, lunch and a viewing of my little show there. Great sandwich and cup of soup!

WISk in Coupeville

What fun they are! I got in a sketch of William, the owner of Local Grown, pulling coffee, then ventured out to the lobby to draw Rosie the whale. Later we headed to Toby's for more sketching, wine and fish and chips. Got in a few more...
