Ballard Locks 09.19.09

Rains, trains and running coho — thoroughly enjoyed my first outing with the Seattle UrbanSketchers.

Not sure I've ever been here without out-of-towners in tow. I didn't even know that the train bridge really does go up and down with some frequency. I first sketched it down, but liked it better up, to let in the view.

Can't wait for the next adventure!


  1. Lovely watercolour. Looks like a nice place to do a sketch crawl :)

  2. very nice susan, the bridge opening up certainly makes for a more active scene, you also capture the morning mist very well

  3. Great watercolor. Love how you captured the depth with the atmospheric perspective. Wish I could have been there.

  4. i love the colors. their vibrancy shows through, without losing the sense of it being a misty grey day.
