Sketching Outside

Is it Spring yet?
Yesterday was a wonderful day to sit outside sketching with friends . At last the grass is green! It happened, literally, over-night. That green grass, a few little blue flowers, and the sunshine get us all excited to get out there. I am not quite as excited to get out there and clean up all the winter debris in the garden, but it'll be okay. We were sketching in a friend's garden, and she had done a MUCH better job with her Fall clean-up than I had. I somehow feel more ambitious about cleaning up the garden when there is promise in the air - not when there is snow in the air.

We had a great time comparing sketchbooks, pens, brushes, all kinds of colored pencils . . . cookies.

This is a quick little sketch in my Moleskine, done in watercolor with my water brush. I'm getting used to it - I am determined to like it - it is SO convenient.
