Buckingham Fountain: It was hot and hazy afternoon at Buckingham Fountain. I'll bet it was 90+°. There was one little spot of shade by a concession stand and it was just that - only a spot but it was enough! A large lemonade, a sketchbook and a few sketching friends made for a nice afternoon despite the heat.
(I have no clue what happened to the upper right hand corner of the scan.)

Next, I sketched people who were passing by or standing around. I loved the young woman who was listening to a tour group leader giving a lecture. The young woman kept fidgeting her legs around, while keeping her arms crossed. Even from across the street, it was obvious that she was bored out of her mind!

I copied the symbol for “horse” from the base of the sculpture. Then, the oldest member of my fan club asked if she could draw the “new” symbol on my page. I was delighted with that! All in all, a great day with the Urban Sketchers!
