Paraty Pity Party

The group of Friday ad hoc sketchers from Urban Sketchers Seattle met in the UW Medicinal Herb Garden.  It was a cool, gray day with flat light.  It even sprinkled rain a bit, near the end.

The International Urban Sketchers symposium is going on this weekend in Paraty, Brazil. There are 4 Seattle sketchers there as far as I know.   So I called this outing the "Paraty Pity Party" and made badges to wear and/or stick on a sketchbook!

We spread out around the several acres of garden.  I was thinking of the USk weekly theme "doors and gates" when I chose this spot.  It is the entry to the garden, guarded by crazy monkey sculptures.  I could not find anything on the internet about them.  The phone guide indicated they are copies of Italian sculptures which graced the 1st medicinal garden.  They are thought to protect the garden.

We gathered in the garden/bus shelter out of the rain to share sketches.

Then we had a group photo.

  1. What fun! I enjoyed your witty and amusing idea of having our own Paraty Pity Party while friends and colleagues are away. Actually, I am very excited for them. Judging by the posts and pictures, it has to be fabulous. Well done USkParaty2014! Thanks for the badges. :)
