Yesterday I went to the Denver Botanic Gardens with my friend Liz Kettle. There is an exhibit there in the gardens, of sculptural bamboo. It was hot, really hot, so we found a shady place to draw these sinuous, flowing and tremendously exciting pieces. This one is at the entrance.
Liz has wonderful pictures of what we drew on her blog.
Here is my sketchbook page.
The bamboo moves through the gardens with amazing grace and beauty. Some of the sculptures were floating on the ponds. They looked architectural, nautical, lyrical.
The rest of the gardens were bursting with color, which quite surprised me after the heat we have had this summer.
It was a lovely day with an interesting friend, wandering. Ahhhh.
