Discovery Gardens in Tavares, FL is part of the UF Extension office. They have a lovely garden with many different areas to wander through. Fountains and shady nooks and cactus and chimes and lots of benches. Very fun.
My Sketching Group in Florida met there this morning for a few hours. By noon it was close to 90 in the full sun so we broke up then and headed out.
Here's my initial sketch done with my Lamy fountain pen in my Stillman and Birns notebook.
I used my Winsor Newton small wc kit and water brush for this. It's not my most favorite sketching set up but I was kind of in a hurry this morning and took my smallest set up. I hope next time I can take a little bigger palette and some real brushes.
I plan to add some printing and maybe a map and I'll repost that when I have time to do it.
The fountain played lovely splashing sounds as we painted. I think we had about 6 or 7 people sketching. One of the gals sketched me into her drawing...that was cool.
Some of the gals went to lunch but I had a meeting and had to head home. Hopefully next time.
