Volunteer Park on a Chilly June day

A small group of Urban Sketchers gathered in Volunteer Park on Friday.  Even at 10 AM, it was a bit chilly
 for some of us to sit or stand outside, so we sketched from our cars.
Sometimes, I "prep" a page beforehand with some diluted acrylic airbrush paints.  In this sketch, I had splashed some blues, and it seemed perfect for the scene, especially since the blues were in the area where the glass structure was.  I think we are always glad for those serendipitous watercolor moments.


  1. Exquisite, Peggy! I like the description of your process!

  2. This turned out really beautifully! The glass is wonderful. That's very funny about sketching the conservatory from a car. We have had other sketchcrawls there with the same result!

  3. Very nice Peggy! I need to make it up there soon.

  4. This is so beautifully done! I like how you've done the glass and the foliage.
