The Memphis Urban Sketchers met at the Memphis Farmers Market this morning. It's a marvelous place to sketch, with so much color and vibrancy as well as good friends cruising past every so often. I enjoyed sharing a bench with Tom Pellet, our most prolific sketcher. He's always trying new markers and materials and is generous with his excellent advice.
We met back up at noon to compare sketches. It's fun to see what others do with the same scene but different eyes and materials.
As a bonus, I took home an excellent lunch of cherry heirloom tomatoes and a mushroom tart.
Here's another bonus below, a third farmers market sketch I did a while ago but forgot (I think) to post. Whitton Farms (also featured in the flower sketch above) has the coolest farm vehicle ever. They're also great people, and Keith kept my purse for me a few weeks ago when and friend and favorite swing dance partner was through town, and I wanted to dance a little to the band without worrying about my wallet. Thanks, Jill and Keith, for all the goodness you bring to Memphis!
