|St. Francis in the Beauregard-Keyes Walled Gardens|
Sketched on location
[I recently had someone ask "Don't you ever make mistakes!?!" Take a close look at the page above and you'll note one colossal mistake—the bricks....I drew what I THOUGHT I saw there rather than what I OBSERVED to be there. To downplay the wrong perspective, I washed some darker color over the bricks so that they are less noticeable. So the answer is "YES. I make mistakes. I also do what I can do downplay or correct them and move on. Lastly, I seldom point out mistakes because most of the time, if we don't say anything, no one notices anyway!"]

embellishments. The train is made of velvet and
trimmed with real fur—it had to weigh a ton!!

It was a wonderful way to wrap up our week in NOLA with a fabulously wonderful group of sketchers!
[I have a few more pages to share (that are out of order) where I've done a few different and fun things to change them up a bit!]
