Hall of Waters
I went on my first sketch crawl today. It's the one organized by Kate Johnson in Excelsior Springs, MO. I'm one lucky pup to only be 90 miles from real sketchers and water color artists that do crawls and let hacks like me tag along. We had quiet sketching time in the early afternoon hours. It's neat to be with people that understand these things can't be hurried. The Halls of Water has a neat long tall room full of glass designed to bring in the sun, with a (former) water bar area that now sells bottled water and misc. goods, and a free history lesson if you ask. Then a jaunt over to a local restaurant to talk things over and eat a bite. A person could get used to this.
