SATURDAY: Sketch the Winter Garden


​The Winter Garden at Brookfield Place

During the warm days of summer I wrote a list of all the cold weather locations we could use for sketching in the winter.  For some reason I wrote "Winter Garden".   I think most people refer to it as Brookfield Place.  When I looked at my list I just saw the words "Winter Garden" and that seemed like a delightful idea.

Honestly, it's not much of a garden but it is a really interesting, warm, dry place, with bathrooms and good food nearby.  What it has, is some challenging sketching.  The first time a met PJ Cobbs was at the Winter Garden.  She sat at my table and looked around for a long time trying to figure out what she'd sketch.  She eventually opted for what I considered the most difficult perspective challenge there.  And she drew it, . . .  beautifully.  Me? I spent the day drawing the people passing through.   

In other words, it's a good place, and you are invited to join us sketching this SATURDAY.  Details below:
