This page is dedicated to my friends and students who come out into the fresh air and draw wonderful drawings =)
Today we returned to Katonah for some more sketching. It was a beautiful summer day, lots of
sunshine but plenty of shade offered by the big old trees that line all the streets. Betsy returned for a
second time and Bobbie, Stephanie, Sandy, Janet and Hillary added their wonderful drawings
to the outdoor workshop. It was a wonderful day =)
The fruits of the day …….well done all!
Ladies out in the day…
Houses of Katonah
Today our group went to Katonah….it was a wonderful day….I had a great time watching the accordion journals take
shape =) Valerie, Betsy and Linda all took on the lovely homes of Katonah, NY . After an hour of drawing the skies
darkened and the rain began pouring down. We ran for the lovely large porch of the Church of Christian Scientists.
Nobody was there and we sat around a big table exchanging ideas and drawings. It was a very nice morning…I can’t
wait for the next one =) So here are photos of our day….my regular camera was on the fritz so these have all been taken
with my iphone….enjoy!
my two small sketches
This Saturday, July 11th Bobbie, Yvonne, Stephanie and I took our drawing pads to Lasdon Arboretum. It was a beautiful day, clear bright sun with a lovely light breeze. We sat in the shade of the trees and worked on perspective and how to use different textures and pen marks to identify a variety of trees. It was a really lovely day =)
Here are some drawings and photos of our day =) enjoy!

see I feel even more at home with the Jizos watching over us =)
