Pike Place Market Musicians

Decided to sketch the entertainment, the guy with the guitar was very good, the guy with the accordion I couldn't hear (drew him from across the street) and not quite sure what kind of costume the dog was wearing - statue of Liberty maybe..... Pen and ink, watercolor.


  1. Love these sketches Mark. You were really able to capture these street musicians. Great composition especially the accordian player.

  2. I love them! I see a sense of playfulness and humor. Reminds me of Maurice Sendak. And that black panel behind the accordion player brings out not only the color but his shape. Nicely done.

  3. Mark,
    Great images! I really enjoy the use of color and how it enhances the sketch. Thanks for posting.

  6. Thanks for the variety. You took on the challenge of the figure in motion and nailed it!
