Day 973 St Patrick’s Day in Augusta¬†

We had an Urban Sketchers of Augusta meet up at Artus to draw the St Patrick’s day parade Friday. Fun time with Sandy from Artus and AC who fell in love w my Lamy EF that I lent him and sweet Katie Padgett.  
These guys were enjoying some Guinness in front of Soy Noodle House and watching the parade go by. Architecture is a little wonky because I was standing on the sidewalk looking around the mob that passed by. Some of them would just stand in front of me. Eeek. 

Whiskey Bar still needs paint. These two are on 280# Arches cold press. Oops cut off their legs. 

A great pirate ship passed by. I taught AC and Katie that u don’t have to draw everyone you see but can add people from different floats to the one you are working on. Who will know!? Just you. 

One float was full of an adorable group of older women from St Johns Towers a retirement home. I forgot to draw the crowd in front darn it because I was so enthralled with the old truck and the ladies. 

These two are in my Stillman and Birn Alpha which is almost full. 

All are drawn with my Lamy Safari. Painted w Ted Nuttalls transparent palette. 

Ttyl class in Aiken.
