The Whidbey Island Sketchers gather weekly at some compelling site. It is a wonderful regular practice to sketch weekly (or more!). I'm grateful for the opportunity & inspiration. I joined them at the Spoiled Dog Winery and despite chilly breezes & episodes of drizzles, it was fabulous. I learned that sketchers adapt; we pulled out umbrellas while the rain spritzed and continued on our mission wrapped in warm clothes, undaunted. Horses, lamas, spoiled dogs, a charming main building, and excellent wine. That's Mary and Sherryl sitting in beach chairs with their sketching paraphernalia scattered about.
