SketchCrawl on the museum grounds

One of the brick pathways that wind through the outdoor displays.

What a nice group of sketchers we had!  Our outing on Saturday was planned as part of the 32nd Worldwide SketchCrawl, an event that spans the world and joins artists and drawing enthusiasts for a day of creative sketching fun.  We met at the Collier County Museum from 9 am to 12 noon, and sketched and painted the lovely grounds in the back. 

Our sign, so visitors could find us.

It was a hot day, just right for a rest in the shade!

Being able to peek over other artist's shoulders while they're creating is very inspiring.  I came away with new ideas and increased enthusiasm to make art.  I felt lucky to be around these wonderfully creative people!  Check the SketchCrawl page (the tabs at the top under the banner) here on the blog soon for upcoming photos of our group, and for the next SketchCrawl location.  There is also an online photo gallery at our local paper - Naples News - that you can visit now to see some of the participants and their work.
