Rainy Sketch Date

A little rain never stops us urban sketchers. Well actually it usually stops me from going out, but not when my die-hard buddies are willing to risk the elements. So on Tuesday we met at Dominican University in San Rafael for a drizzly day. Sitting on a porch wasn’t such a bad idea, at least for a while until the cold started to seep into the bones.

Of course then we had water saturated sketchbooks that needed to be held open under the umbrellas while walking back to the car. The next stop was lunch in a warm bar downtown.

I’m not accustomed to hanging out in bars, but I must say that the sketching opportunities are good. One gets a little bored with coffee shop folks glued to their computers.

When I christened these men Sports Bar Flies I realized that we had sat there for a while after finishing lunch and could easily fall into that same category!
