A great time sketching with Texas Tech Landscape Architecture students!

Last week I was privileged to conduct a two day sketching workshop with a group of landscape architecture students at Texas Tech University.  These are a few of the exercises and demos that we did.  The two days culminated in a location sketching session on campus.  What a great group of students!  Thanks to Instructors Christine Casanova and Katherine Nelson for recognizing the importance of sketching in the creative process and for giving me the opportunity to share a few of the things that I have learned over the years!

We enjoyed a short session of location sketching to wind up the 2 day event.

  1. Fantastic, Tim...so glad you got to do that! The students are lucky to have you as part of their design community.

  2. As a landscape enthusiast I am always searching for unusual European garden ornaments. One of my trips led me to the country side of Italy where I fell in love with the natural feel of its gardens. I came back to the US and was trying to find a company which would offer me the same sensation as I had experienced Tuscany. A friend told me about Authentic Provence, the moment I stepped into their showroom I was taken aback in awe. Their exquisite collection of French and Italian antiques were exactly what I was looking for to complement my garden. Now my garden is the show piece, through Authentic Provence's unique garden ornaments. I am now encompassed by the true Tuscan lifestyle. Visit them at www.authenticprovence.com and you will find what you are seeking.

  3. I re-migrated to Palm Beach after living in Tuscany for five years; I naturally missed the scenery of the Tuscan Hills, the picturesque beauty and old world feel. My sister recommended Authentic Provence and mentioned their European garden antiques and unique French and Italian Décor that added that touch of elegance to her estate. I hastily visited their showroom and The Secret Garden, an outdoor showroom and was in awe of all the authentic garden antiques, European planters, Antique Garden Fountains, Outdoor Furniture, Wellheads and Gazebos that Authentic Provence had to offer, it was definitely life changing for me, as these finds are so rare in the US. Now when I have that longing for my Tuscan life I simply venture into my garden and I’m immediately transported to Tuscany. Visit them at www.authenticprovence.com and be inspired by a world that is exquisitely divine.
