Saturday the Japanese Garden

I wound up at the Japanese Garden today. It was raining, but a shelter provided a pleasant place for sketching. I also stopped into the Pavilion to see "Mottainai": The Fabric of Life exhibit .....and I recognized the author Ursula Le Guin taking in the show along side me. How's that for a "High Brow"Saturday?!

Sketch: Celeste Bergin, Stone lantern, ink (Elegant Writer pen) and water on 6x9 paper

Your days are always so full of interesting and fun things to do, Celeste! I'm awed. Love this ink wash painting too. I just yesterday played with some ink on a watercolor. Unfortunately, I have to cut away that section, but now I see how ink washes work!

I haven't been to the Japanese Garden in a long time. I bet it is good to be there in the rain. Good sketch!

Un moment plaisir... Un dessin plein de charme.
Ici, en France nous avons eu de la pluie +++. dans certaines régions même, pour beaucoup, des maisons inondées.
J'ai passé une journée agréable à l'atelier
Gros bisous
