PROVIDENCE, RI, USA [RESULTS]

Post by sumacm » Mon Apr 18, 2011 10:54 am

Despite the raw, chilly weather, we had a very successful and fun Sketchcrawl in Providence, Rhode Island!
Two of us started out at Coffee Exchange on Wickenden St. It was fairly crowded, so we decided to walk and sketch along the way.

We first stopped at Arnold and Benefit Streets to sketch some building details.

Next, we came upon a street fair where local students were selling their wares. We sketched some musicians and vendors:

As it was quite cold, we stopped for lunch at Harry's Bar & Burger. Coincidentally, we ran into the other members of our group there and proceeded to RISD's Edna Lawrence Nature Lab to sketch the specimens and animals.

Yes, that's a live snake draped around her neck -- seemed quite comfortable there!

Finally, we ended the day at La Laiterie Bistro/Farmstead, a delightful cheese shop and restaurant, where we all met up (sketchers and non-sketchers alike) for a great dinner!
