Civil War Weekend at Fort Snelling

It was a marvelous sketching opportunity this weekend at Fort Snelling in Minneapolis. It was two days of authentic costumes and activities, all at the fort where it really happened--- talk about "production value"! The end of the Civil War was 150 years ago, therefore the sesquicentennial. I worked in a hard-bound Kunst & Papier watercolor journal with my Preppy carbon ink pen, a watercolor pencil and my indispensable Whiskey Painters watercolor palette.

  1. These are wonderful, Roberta...a different era, for sure. You're really captured the feeling.

  2. Love that ballroom gown! How impractical yet visually captivating.
