"Wednesday Sketchabout: McGills"

The "Urban Sketchers: TriCities" met this morning for breakfast and sketching at McGill's Restaurant in Pasco, WA.  As usual, we had a great time talking about art in general and sketching in particular. 
Nancy and I had a kind of "sketch-off" at the table.  This is, of course, my sketch of her. 
She was amazed at how exact it is, and I was pleased she thought so.  LOL. 
A perfect depiction of our good friend and fellow sketcher, Dave. 
Sometimes I think we get caught up thinking during these cold winter months, while we have to stay indoors, that we have to draw people.  I decided this time to simply go with the condiment tray on our table.  It was rather fun to work on because it didn't get up and go to the restroom, or recross its legs, move its hands, or just get up and leave.  None of these items moved at all, except when Nancy and Dave used them once the food arrived, but then it was easy to get them all back into the same position.  Sort of like when your drawing a naked person and after break time all their limbs, feet, hands and head are all put back into alignment with the masking tape.  Sorta. 


  1. This is so ugly but thanks anyway.

    1. Well, if you read the caption, it's really Dave. Oh,'re welcome.

  2. Wow, the condiment drawing is awesome!
