Springtime at Swanson’s

3/25/16 ink, colored pencils

Swanson’s Nursery has become an annual holiday tradition for the Friday sketchers because this garden store always brings in a couple of reindeer, a camel and Santa for kids, and the Christmas decorations are beautiful. I think springtime at Swanson’s might become a new tradition – the flowers were plentiful and colorful today.

Unfortunately, I was too cold this morning to sketch outdoors where the flowers were. Wimp that I am, I sketched inside the café, which is a jungle of oversized tropical plants. I even made a hatched study of one of the pillars, while Natalie sketched me!

A few minutes before the sharing time, the sun came out, so I ventured out and spotted St. Francis of Assisi.

Natalie Taylor sketched me!

  1. Glad you are so adaptable and can sketch indoors or outdoors when needed. Like me, you can always find a subject. Love the one of St. Francis!

  2. Looks like it was a great sketching session. Love the detail vignette. I see you haven't given up on the yellow FN, which is a good sign. I haven't yet tried it but your statue sketch may motivate me to do so. --- Larry
