Sketchers at the Tulip Fields

Two more days until the "official" opening of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival and the fields are at peak already. Anacortes sketchers met across from Christianson's Nursery in Mt Vernon today at what may be the ultimate field this year.
Spring has sprung! 68 degrees and color everywhere !
Update: My friend and fellow artist took a photo of me painting this sketch. See it here.
ASk sketching in the tulip fields today. A trophy shot of my sketch in progress.
A bystander asked if we all wanted our photo together, I gave her my camera, she took two photos and I have no idea what happened to them. I should have checked to see if she pushed the right button, I guess.

I did get some photos of Anne and Joyce sitting on their portable camp stools very close to the mud! and our group photo of sketches, a distant view of the group putting their work at the end of a row and a trophy shot of my sketch in progress.


  1. Michele another beautiful painting. Also thanks for the heads up about the early tulips. My son took me up for my birthday on the 26th and we enjoyed the whole day with gorgeous weather to boot. The flowers are so beautiful too.

  2. That looks like such a wonderful place to sketch!! I love seeing all the sketches there in the field.
