Bastrop Sketchers to Resort

Yesterday was sketching day with the Bastrop Sketchers.  It was a fine day, pretty cool in the morning and a high only of about 84 degrees F.  The destination was the Lost Pines Resort (Hyatt) between Bastrop and Austin.  https://lostpines.regency.hyatt.com

It is a beautiful place.  The inside halls are decorated with local and Texas art.  The floors in the lobby are pecan from Texas.  There are huge photos of the area along with historic photos.  Nooks and crannies everywhere for sitting, relaxing, exploring.  The shops, restaurants, pool, etc., are all very well done with the look of Texas.  The golf course is amazing.

Anyway, no photos from me.  Hmmm.

I sketched in the travel sketchbook with the Micron 01 and some watercolor.

Most of my sketches fit in Scavenger Hunt 497

Number 8, water related - the splash surface and wading pool


Number 9, architecture - Old Bucks Place, close to the pool for snacks and drinks.  I forgot the sign, so nothing new!

Bonus of the covered wagon.  They had two but I couldn't get them both in one sketch from my chair.

Number 10, landscape - one of the nooks and crannies near the bar/restaurant.  You can see the tennis courts across the water.

Number 11, plants.  I tried to include them in each sketch.  You don't see palm trees in Bastrop in general so included some.

It was a good day.  The outings will probably be moved to inside during the months of heat in Bastrop.  One more outdoor session in two weeks, probably at the cemetery.

It was certainly a good sketch day!

Bag Blog, sure was a good day. They were supposedly filming something so I didn't try to get close to the longhorns for sketching. Next time.
