I recently had the wonderful opportunity for lunch and sketching with a friend at Cantigny Park. I left my camera at home, determined to actually sketch instead of lug my supplies around like I did at Kalamazoo! It was a beautiful day, a bit humid, but all that faded away once I started studying the flowers. I was drawn to the beautiful contrast of light flowers against the dark background as well as the graceful shape of the hosta flowers. I started with pencil, added watercolor and finished with ink. Enjoy!
My friend was amused to look up and see three people on Segways behind me…they were very quiet and it took a while before I became aware of them!
