Art Class at Artist & Craftsman

I am bummed I will once again miss the monthly sketch outing due to a looming deadline so am posting this sketch from today instead. For the holidays this year I got my friend Laura an art class at Artist & Craftsman taught by fellow Seattle Urban Sketcher Steve Reddy. I've been sitting at my computer nonstop for a week and although I did not have time to break away today was the day. I had trouble parking and came in a few minutes late and couldn't sit next to Laura so I thought I would take the opportunity to sketch her during the class. I was a bad student. I managed to squeeze out one still life drawing per instructions and then my mind wandered off to all of the colors in the room and I couldn't resist... I was then referred to by the instructor as --"...there is Jackie, she is off in her own Private Idaho."I have such a hard time drawing pears. Thank you Steve - Great class I'm sorry I was such a problem student but on the bright side you inspired Laura and I think I will be able to get her out to a sketchcrawl one of these days...


  1. "Bad" students just learn in different ways! ;-) Love your colorful, lively sketch!
