Thanks to Patty Gardner for finding this location for us to draw from last Wednesday morning. It is a personal residence situated along the eastern banks of the Columbia River. The view was of what many call the "Concrete Bridge" that connects Pasco to Richland, WA. Depending on which direction you are traveling the bridge is on an incline/decline as the Pasco side is elevated above that of the Richland side. What I wanted to capture in this sketch was the group of sketchers at the base of that old sycamore tree who were in the sunlight. It was a beautiful October morning where the temperature was almost perfect, there was no wind, and tons of blue sky overhead. As usual we had a fun time together, sketching.

USktc met at THE REACH Richand WA some of us sketched out side the museum and some went in side to sketch. I think I pick the Fall Season for my favorite time of year I had a black jacket on in the middle of the black parking lot and didn't even break a sweat.

Out with the sketchmob, aka, USkTC, last Wednesday morning at the Uptown Shopping Center in Richland, WA. While the others stayed on the "outside" of the rectangle of shops, I found my way to the inner core where the electrical wires, garbage, and other utilities are located. I am amazed that this wiring system passes code in all respects and that the whole center hasn't gone up in flames, yet.

Jim Bumgarner gave us a demonstration a while back on looking into a crowd of people and how to sketch it very fast. he said all the heads would be on the same level and of course he is right again!
Never doubted him for a minute
