St Paddy's day

A couple of us met at Biddy Mcgraw's to take in their St Patrick's Day celebration. There was some confusion about the opening time but we eventually got in around 11:00. The place filled up very quickly with families and other it got loud almost immediately. Alanna, Kalina and I were positioned pretty much in the middle of the action. If you use your imagination you will see an incomplete portrait of Kalina in the top drawing. And an equally indistinct portrait of Alanna in the drawing below.

After some time we left Biddy's and settled in the Seven Virtues Cafe across the street. Aha...quiet and calm and the big windows allowed for some good street views.

San Antonio

I'm sorry I haven't been able to attend any recent sketching events. I haven't done much drawing lately, unfortunately. I took a little time to sketch on a trip to visit my daughter in San Antonio, last week. Sadly the weather was very similar to what we've been having here so it was cold and wet but I got a couple of sketches done under cover on the River Walk.

The one above was looking up from the River Walk to the skyline.
