We had an extra meeting for Memphis Urban Sketchers yesterday to draw the Outdoors, Inc. Canoe and Kayak Race yesterday. The race is a Memphis tradition, in its 31st year and some 200 boats strong.

I sketched a tent at the park while we were waiting for the racers to get in sight, and then did a much quicker study of the boats paddling up the harbor towards the finish line and an even quicker sketch of the finish line itself, with the orange buoys.
Finally I sketched some folks relaxing after the race. I loved the colorful quilt they had laid out.
