Sketchbook Journeys - Colorado: Page 3

The farmer's market in Woodland Park is fantastic! Held every Friday morning during the summer, there must have been over 50 vendors set up the day we were there, selling everything from silk skirts to tamales. (I bought a skirt and skipped the tamales.) Everyone was so friendly! It was one of the highlights of our trip.

I went out early that morning to sketch - it was a gorgeous sunny day, and Pike's Peak looked so amazing against the deep blue sky.

I sat in the park by a pond to paint the market. I just can't resist painting awnings and canopies! Aren't they fun?

Tomorrow: a visit to Garden of the Gods ...
