A really special day with the DFW Urban Sketchers group organised by Herb.
Started the day with a coffee and a new sketchbook. Only two days left to my trip – how much of this small sketchbook (approx A5) will I use?
I was to be picked up by Herb and his son Steve, so I did a sketch from my room to fill in time…
and then one down on the street.
I was SO excited about our destination – The Kimbell Art Museum by Louis Kahn.
There are no words to describe how beautiful this building is.
And it felt a little overwhelming to sketch it.
The interior spaces are just wow wow wow!
I have been a fan of Kahn and this building for years, so it was a dream come true to be here.
Such a lovely time with the group too and a little excitement getting attacked by fire ants.
Then a lot of us went for lunch and aimed with my recent boldness from the seanwes conference I decided to sketch everyone.
So much fun….
And then I tried to document my yummy food.
Aaron Dowd, one of the guys I met at the conference in Austin, lives just up the road and so decided to join us for lunch.
Then we went to the Fort Worth Stock Yards for a real Texas feel.
Lots to sketch here…
… and I was in a non-stop mood!
A bit crazy to try and capture the longhorn cattle drive which only lasted a few seconds.
And then it was time for the throwdown. It was such a wonderful day and what a lovely group of sketchers.
Thanks to Steve and Herb for looking after me!
Back in Dallas and still sketching – a lovely Japanese meal.
What a big day of sketching hey?
