After people sketching at lunch (see post below) it was time to sketch the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens itself again. I walked around all the different areas but each of them felt too hot (Did I really say that?) so I went upstairs to the Bonsai Museum where I knew it would be colder. I had to put my coat back on to sketch in there, but I love the grace and elegance of the plants there so I happily put up with the colder temperatures.
The entryway had some nicely landscaped areas and I tried to capture the little waterfall over the rocks.
Around 3:30 we headed over to Tooker Alley to share a drink and our sketches. It is always such a pleasure to see all the work that everyone did during the day. What a perfect time to get acquainted with Florian who was visiting from Berlin, as well as today's new members...and to catch up with our regular members. It is also a perfect opportunity for another sketch, so I zeroed in on the couple sitting at the bar nearby.
It was a fun day. I really look forward to sketching with the group, but I will miss this weekend and next because I am away.
