Sketching Downtown Austin

i had so much fun Saturday sketching with my Urban Sketchers group. The weather was good-we beat the heat and it was an all around good morning. I find that my sketching is improving each time we meet. I’m excited about that!

This past Saturday I had a all day art day. I started by re-connecting with my Urban Sketcher’s group. I was glad to see old friends while making new ones. We met at the Domain and it was a great place to sketch and people

watch. As we spread out to find our spots, I was able to find a bench near the fireplace where all the children play. I was able to sketch and enjoy the sunshine which appeared through the clouds every now and then. It was so much fun. I’m not a big outdoor person, so spending time outside really felt good.

My fireplace at Domain photo 1(16)My art is improving. I still have a lot to learn and discover. I want my art to reflect me and not compare myself to others. Members of my group was very supportive and gave me positive feedback but I got to be happy with what I produce because that is why I joined. Thanks to everyone.

I went to my Art Attacks meetup at Jerry’s Artarama. It was all about collage. It was a large group and boy was it fun. I thought it was going to be collage on paper (I read the specifics wrong, plus I only knew of paper collage) but it was done on a panel. I started mine but will have to show you another time because I haven’t finished it. But I will share some photos anyway. Collaging 600_432404633
