December Sketch

We met at Bluff City Coffee for the December Urban Sketchers Memphis Group. It was a beautiful, warm day for December. I drew a few of the buildings on the 500 block of S. Main. I've always loved the Frank James Hotel sign, so I wanted to make sure I included it. The building next door had a cute Merry Christmas banner up. I love the trolley lines in the sketch. I had fun doing this one and I scaled down!!! Yay!

We walked a little bit down the street to draw The National Civil Rights Museum. I got my watercolors out to fill this one in. I love the colors; seafoam green is my favorite.

A few of us went to the Arcade for lunch. I got a strawberry shake + fries. The shake was AMAZING!!! Here's a quick sketch before I had to take a bite:

great day for coffee and a sketch

I enjoyed seeing a lot of new faces in downtown Memphis today. The weather was great and it was fun dealing with the barricades that they put up for the marathon and tonight's parade. Special thanks to the guy who left his bike:)
Here's what I drew on South Main.
