Riverside Public Library

Today I met up with Deborah from Silverwoman Studios at the Riverside Art Museum.   We had been wanting to get together but it just hadn't happened until today.  I really enjoyed my day with her.  We spent a couple of hours at the museum which right now has the Watercolor West show in it's main gallery.  Then, along with a group she was with, we went to Las Campanas at the Mission Inn for lunch and margaritas!  After lunch the two of us found a spot on the library grounds and did some sketching together.  I loved looking at her sketchbooks she brought along.  The carnet du voyage of her trip to France last fall is beautiful!  It's so much fun to see the real sketches rather than what we see on the computer screen.  We hit it off great and hope to get together again for another fun art day!  Here are the two sketches I produced while we sat on a stone wall in the warm sunshine.

Then I came home, drew this orange in coloured pencil and then ate it!

    Great sketches - beautiful colors. So great that you had another EDM Sketchbuddy crawl. Now you just need to get to New York!
