During spring break me and hubby and boy went to Washington DC. Very cool. lots to see of course.
One day I had an afternoon to explore one of the museums part of it was the Kogood Courtyard a splendid space with a waffle-y rippling ceiling of glass. Alice Tangerini, botanical illustrator from the National Museum of Natural History, conducted a sketching session focusing on the plant specimens in the Courtyard. She showed some of her work, real detailed, accurate and beautiful botanical illustrations.
Dave and Sam joined me and we all sat and sketched together. We have never done that and it was really cool. Sam and I make art sometimes but Dave is mostly a woodworker.
Here is one of my sketches from that day. Also I love her name, Alice Tangerini, seems sort of exotic but wholesome and orange.
