Next Sketch Group Saturday, August 6

Next sketch group:
Saturday, August 6th, 11:30am at the Flying Saucer downtown, 130 Peabody Place at Second Ave.
Come have lunch with Memphis Urban Sketchers since we're running out of indoor places to sketch! The interior of this place is great, plus they usually open the big windows so we can sketch all of the passersby.
Hope to see you there!

Sketching at the Great Peabody Hotel

This was done with pencil, the second with pens and markers, and the third with pencils and colored pencils.

After the tourists had died down, I came downstairs to sketch the ducks. FYI: ducks do not sit still.


In such a glorious building, with the duck master and his ducks making their daily march, I found it interesting that some people choose to be on ipads and phones instead take in the scenery.

Memphis Urban Sketchers @ The Peabody

This month we went to The Peabody for our sketch group. There were lots of people in the lobby waiting to see the ducks march. It was quite a production. I'm just glad I sat in a seat with a good view of the fountain.

It was a great place to sketch! The air conditioning was nice + some of the girls even got mimosas! :) I decided to sketch the beautiful chandelier next. It was so ornate.

Sketching at the Peabody Hotel

Today we met at the Peabody Hotel for air-conditioned sketching. We learned that sketching while being served mimosas is ideal.
