Five of us met at the Denver Botanic Gardens with the intention of sketching the Jungle Rooms. We all pretty much got hung up on the Orchids. This is my sketch of Kathy, as she and I just sat up camp in the atrium and imbibed the ambiance.
How to have an amazing good time at the Botanic Gardens in Winter
We have been known to have larger crowds, but I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a more relaxed and happy group than the one on Sunday.
That’s Helen, Kathy, Jason (Helen’s father) and Frank. Frank is a long-time member now whose ability keeps growing by leaps and bounds.
Our youngest member is Helen and I had my eyes on both her sketch and that delicious cupcake!
Jason is her Dad and he sends her to school every morning with a sketch in her lunch kit. How nice is that!
Jason prepares these little cards on cardstock which he gessoes. A sketch a day is his personal challenge.
This group were having a good time, no doubt about it. You can join us at Denver Urban Sketching. We try to go out once a month to different locations around the area.
I’m especially enjoying the simple line sketches nowadays.
More sketchers are shown periodically in my blog. Tell me some more great places to go sketching as we March into Spring! Yea!
