Overton Park

I've been having a great time lately walking my dog over to the park and letting him enjoy the nice weather while I draw. Overton Park, our large, Central Park-inspired landscape is one of the very best things about living in my neighborhood, and I'm there almost every day.
Today it was both late and cloudy when I got there, so I just did a pencil sketch of one of my favorite trees.

 This was Mary K's first time sketching with us, and we are happy to have her! She did the first two sketches here in pencil, and the helmet is in mixed media.

Greg Larson's Sketches from the Brooks

These sketches are by Greg Larson, who is fairly new to the group. He likes sketching large-scale, and these were done on 18" x 24" paper, with pencil. These are from the Armed + Dangerous exhibit currently at the Brooks Museum of Art.

Sketching at the Brooks Museum Today

Here are a few sketches from our gathering at the Brooks Museum today. Thanks to everyone for coming out today, especially all of the new folks! A big thank you to Martha Kelly for the free passes, and a super big thank you to Brooks Museum and their wonderful staff. Everyone was so accommodating and so patient with us, and the show Armed and Dangerous was awesome! We can't wait to come back!
