Gas Works Park w/ Seattle Urban Sketchers

Lived in the Seattle area all my life and had never been to Gas Works Park. What a fantastic place to draw! Had a great time joining the group and seeing the work created this morning. A learning experience.


  1. Really terrific sketches, both! So glad you finally got to visit Gas Works!

  2. Those are so lovely! Just linked them on my blog, really wish I could join you all for sketching!

  3. and I thought I was the only newbie to the park! you go from watercolor to line art effortlessly Mark!

  4. Both look like pages from a book - like part of an illustrated narrative. Nice work. They remind me a bit of the Maira Kalman blog on the NY Times site. I really like the idea of the sketches as equal to or supportive of a narrative.
