March Sketch Group

On Saturday our sketch group met at the National Ornamental Metal Museum, which sits right on the Mississippi River. It was a perfect day for sketching - still snow on the ground, but the sun shining so bright it kept us warm long enough to sketch outside. The Museum is home to a working foundry and smithy, where they were having a class in blacksmithing, and we sketched in there, too.

Sketching at the National Ornamental Iron Museum

Four urban sketchers showed up at the National Ornamental Iron Museum on an unusual March day because snow was still on the ground. I sketched mostly outside looking at the Mississippi River, with a quick stop inside the foundry to warm up.
