ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA - RESULTS

Post by MarilynnB » Sat Jul 23, 2011 8:55 pm

Eleven women and one guy showed up at the Atlanta Water Gardens http://www.atlantawatergardens today to sketch. It was hot, hot, hot, but the ambiance of the Gardens -- the tinkle of wind chimes, the soft puffs of a northerly breeze, the gentle bubbling of fountains here, there and everywhere, and the owners' offering of ice-cold lemonade -- helped us forget the heat.

Here are my sketches. More from the other participants are on the way.

You made it look cool. We had heat too, and a few sprinkles. Very nice renderings.

Marilynn - wonderful watercolors and I loved the opening descriptions of the chimes and the breeze - very poetic :wave:

I loved those multi-shaded color washes and line work that made the plants and shrubs come alive.
