|I can now cross this event off my sketching bucket list. So many hats, so little time! This group is an entourage of 7 people. The come in matching outfits every year.|
|These guys came with their hats and jackets covered with glued on jelly beans and candy corn in Easter colors.|
|Harriet is a milliner . Smart lady. She comes every year in one of her creations. Good publicity. This had was so huge it was hard to miss her.|
Polka dot paper bags filled with peeps.
You can see me sketching from the 4 min to 4min 29 sec mark.
|If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, looks like a duck... it must be a duck.|
|One of my favorites of the day. An American Bulldog , rescued and adopted last November... all 65 lbs of her. Built like a tank and a tail that didn't quit. She donned rabbit ears. Her name is Brisket.|
|I didn't bring my stool. I figured it would be too crowded and limit my view. I sketched directly in ink and ended up sketching over 50 peeps. Color was added from memory at home. I can't wait to go back again.|
Wonderful sketches, Susan, of a really fun day. Only you could get the back stories AND the sketches all at once!ReplyDelete
Thanks for looking and commenting Melanie. I think the participants were more flattered that some one took the time to sketch them rather than taking a fleeting photo. The fact that I lingered a little longer opened up the opportunity for conversation. Plus the fact that anyone dressed in a hat had to be pretty outgoing.Delete
This is a fantastic collection of sketches, Susan! I sure wish I could be there to sketch it one of these years. What fun!ReplyDelete
It is great to see all your sketches from the day all in one place. I think anyone in the parade would be flattered to have you sketch them...a great form of flattery! Too bad the link doesn't work here.ReplyDelete
Thanks Joan. It does make a statement about the day! I fixed the link to the video. You have to do a cut and paste.Delete
