Sunday Sketching at the St. Paul Farmers' Market

Farmers' Market Iris, about 8 x 6.5", pastel pencil, carbon pencil and white pastel on paper

What artists do at the Farmer's Market. The irises were gorgeous, so I stood there and sketched one.
Been out making little sketches again this morning.

Noticing these small things and drawing them is a source of real pleasure for me, and I recommend it even if you think you "can't draw." Nobody has to see what you do, but the joy of recording the moment is something that photography, in my experience, can't provide. There's a whole other connection when I've made a sketch, even if it's a very unfinished or inaccurate sketch.
