Yesterday, January 25, was the 42nd International Sketchcrawl and I joined the NYC Urban Sketchers in Brooklyn. Our first stop was at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Yep. The Arctic blast is visiting so we went to view gardens and sketch.

Thank goodness for the greenhouse. The Ponytail Plant in the desert greenhouse caught my eye. What a messy peculiar looking plant. Just got out of bed I guess.

A little way along the path this plant caught my eye.

We had lunch in the small cafeteria. I attempted to sketch Susan and Joan and am not at all happy with what I did but I am including it because, for me, it evokes the area where we were eating, the two tables pushed together, unexpectedly delish bread on my tuna sandwich, conversation and laughter.

There was only about a minute for this sketch of Svetlana in earnest conversation with Betsy. This is the only one I tarted up a bit (I used the Glaze app later) at home.

Time had come for us to walk over to the Brooklyn Museum. I did so many (got my mojo back) drawings that they won’t fit in one blog post.

Stay tuned.
