Memphis Urban Sketchers @ Dixon Gallery + Gardens

This month we sketched at the Dixon.  We started in the gardens.  I decided to sketch this deer first.  It reminded me of Zac + he was out at his hunting land.  I wondered if I saw more deer than he did (I didn't).  I found a cute little bench on top of gorgeous stepping stones + grass.  It was so peaceful...then came the mosquitos...they were relentless.  I didn't even think about bringing bug spray.  I still really enjoyed it.

They had tons of beautiful flowers blooming.  Zinnias are some of my favorites too :)

It started to get hot + the gallery was opening, so I went inside.  The guard did not like my mini backpack so I had to take it out to the car.  I carried my small sketchbook + put my car key, pencil sharpener, kneaded eraser + phone in my pocket.  I sketched some Jean-Louis Forain paintings:




My last sketch was of the chairs + lights at the Cafe Forain.  We visited there for a bit + showed our sketches.  Fun morning :)
