I was unable to go to the Chazen on Saturday, but went on Sunday.  I sketched an odd little statue of a Cupid-type figure in the older building.

Next Sketch Date: Saturday December 10th - State Historical Society

My sketch after brushing water over Derwent Inktense pencil drawing in Neutral Grey
We met for sketching from 11am to 1pm at the Chazen yesterday.  I missed Ruth's sketch but hopefully she can post it for us.  The museum was not crowded and a pleasant place to sketch.  Since we will not be sketching on a Sunday next month we thought we would like to do another Saturday morning sketch date and decided on Dec. 10th at the Reading Room at the State Historical Society on Library Mall.  We will meet there on the 2nd floor just outside the Reading Room for sketching from 10 am to noon.  Hope to see you there!

Sketching at Hilldale Mall November 13th

Louisa braving the elements - it was a bit cool outside

Ruth, Gretchen and Elsie also brave the elements

Linda, Reba, Elsie and Mike

Ruth's handmade sketchbook with breakfast cereal covers - very cool!!!

                                                                             Pat, Ruth and Linda with today's sketches
We had a good time sketching at Hilldale and agreed that it would be a good spot for outdoor sketching in warmer weather but a few of us did some outdoor sketches despite the cooler temps.   It was not very crowded today at the mall but there were ample opportunities for figure sketching.  Salvor and Gretchen had to leave a little early and I missed seeing their sketches.  

Next Saturday we will meet at the Chazen at 10 am for sketching until noon and lunch for any one who has time after.
