Sketchcrawl April 22, 2017 - St Timothy Catholic Church, The Villages

We had yet another beautiful day meeting up in The Villages to sketch.

There were five of us this time......two gentlemen I had not met before.  One is a professional illustrator and talk about gorgeous work!!!  I'd like to be like him when I grow up.........lol.

There was Al, Mike, Gail, Sheridan, and myself.  Gail set up in front of the Church sitting on the grounds.  I was not too far but set up in the parking lot right beside my car.  Al was across the parking lot behind me while the other two gentlemen were over towards the front side of the Church set up next to their golf carts.

For those who are unaware.........The Villages is a very large retirement community where many get around in golf carts rather than regular vehicles.  They share the road ways with regular traffic but have their own designated lanes.  It's an experience for anyone who's not been there before.

Due to the fact I sketched the building my first trip there, I decided to capture the statue outside the front doors.

Hand sewn #2 journal with Fabriano Artistico 140lb watercolor paper, and Micron 005.  Watercolor but also used a little gouache (flowers).  Got the idea from the illustrator who works with both watercolor and gouache.

I have never noticed this statue...we always come in side doors. Greg has his Essential Tremor Support group at St. Timothy's the 3rd Wed of every month. It's a nice building. I enjoyed the statue and will look for it next time I go.

Thanks, Ginny :-)

I love the memorial garden as well between the building sections of the Church.
