Last Saturday a group of plein air artists met at
the Fort Worth Stock yards to paint and in my case draw.
It was a nice morning, warm and sunny. We chose different locations
to paint and got started about 10 am. I had gotten there around 9 am
and took photos and tried to decide what to paint.
The Coliseum is a great architectural structure. I chose a small
decorative corner with an open arch at the upper left corner of the
building. At the same location when I turned to my left I could
see Exchange and Rodeo. I decided to draw in
my sketch book rather than paint. I really enjoyed being outdoors and
finished a couple of drawings as seen in the photos below.
