When everyone arrived, we all picked a spot around the building and spent a couple hours sketching and painting until we stopped for lunch.
I'm actually surprised I did as much as I did. While on location, I sketched in pencil only.........saving ink work and any painting for after I returned home.
It was an absolute gorgeous day and we all had a great time.
Met up at Blooms for lunch and then most went home while a few of us checked out Simon's Seed Shop we may return another time to sketch. The shop has a lot of interesting ideas to sketch other than flowers and plants. They have a few exotic birds in cages plus some antiques sitting around inside and outside the building.

I have to say that by the time I got to inking this page, I was pretty tuckered out. Decided to just ink and forget about painting.
