The next day, our last day, we met up with my friend D and she took me and M to see some of the cemeteries after a coffee at Sacred Grounds. We peeked into the Odd Fellows Rest, walked to the Holt Cemetery, drove to the wealthy Metairie Cemetery, and went through St. Patrick's No. 1 and 3. I'm certain that I could have sketched there for hours. But lunch called and we went to eat at the Parkway Bakery and Tavern. Yum!
After a good lunch we went to wander in the French Quarter, before driving back up to Baton Rouge for dinner. I saw so many things to sketch but using the fact that it was rainy as an excuse, I wandered more. I must say that I am struggling with wanting to see everything versus sitting still long enough to draw. For now, I am going to have to content myself with drawing from some of my photos. I hope I return to New Orleans so that I can draw while there. In the meantime I want to practice drawing while on location.
