Stern Grove and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band

The San Francisco Sketchers got together this last Sunday at a free Concert at Stern Grove.  This year marks the 75th anniversary of free Summer Sunday concerts.  Although the weather was cool and wet, the sketchers camaraderie and goodies warmed the soul.  We had lots to sketch and paint; people, trees, crowds, hats, picnic and two bands.  Everyone had their own wonderful techniques.  A few new people joined in and our two picnic blankets were perfect.  We all seem to learn something new from each other every time we meet.  Here are a few sketches I did...just OK, using various mediums.  I had lots of fun listening and swinging with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band tho....
The many variety of hats worn by the audience..
