Sketching in Margaret's Courtyard

Several of our Monday Afternoon Class
from the Fort Worth Woman's Club
enjoyed a lovely outing to the country
Saturday. We sat in Margaret's courtyard, visited and
sketched. There were many interesting things to
study and draw.

This is the original well on the property

A lovely corner in the courtyard

Water works

Oriental Lantern several of us chose
to sketch

 DiAnne's Sketches

The next four sketches are Ruth's sketches

We had a great lunch, Margaret made quiche, Betty made
salad, watermelon from Mary and Warner, DiAnne brought cookies from
the Bluebonnet Bakery and
I brought cupcakes.  All was delicious!!

Come back soon and see more about our outing in the country!

Watercolor Painting done in Morning Class

Watercolor Painting done in Afternoon Class

2nd Painting in Afternoon Class

The paintings were started with a wet into wet
multi colored wash on background.
The dark clouds, palm trees and land
silhouettes were added when the background
was completely dry.
The morning painting was more pastel.
I used stronger colors in the afternoon.

Come back and visit again soon.
