Evening Concert at Whidbey Island Winery

I had the great fortune of hearing Levi Burkle (guitar) and James Hinkley (cello) play at Whidbey Island Winery. They sure make beautiful music as a duo. As well as independently. They're both great musicians. And the Winery's setting made it even more heavenly. Grape vines, tree canopies, grassy lawns and people picnicking, each with a glass of wine, all made for some good sketch subjects. Here's a few...

Sinking at Island Recycle

The Whidbey Island Sketchers met at Island Recycle for our usual sketch session. It was a gorgeous day for painting outdoors. I thought these sinks in the grass were arranged in an interesting way so I gave it a shot. It's a funky drawing, like the sinks.

Later I did this sketch of Phyllis, a WISK member. The only one to date which looks remotely like her. I think my best drawing of the day.
