A Perfect Day in Tacoma

We really hit the mark on Saturday.  No rain and a perfect day for sketching.  Tacoma is so picturesque the scale of the city is just right.  Sky, water, historic buildings,  the Glass museum and about 35 urban sketchers.  We had a great turnout for our second annual Pacific Northwest regional sketchcrawl.  It was great meeting up with the Portland Sketchers and Whidbey Island Sketchers. Seattle had a great turnout of longtime and new sketchers.  Thanks all for coming and making it a great day!

  1. Magnificent sketches, Gail, full of depth and inviting color! Can really feel the air that day through your light and shadow.

  2. What fantastic blues! Gail, these are just gorgeous and very inspirational! Thanks for the hosting us in Tacoma. It was a fun and educational day.

  3. I am so drawn into your colors, Gail. These are very beautiful.

  4. Thanks all! Wasn't it such a winderful location! I feel like you can go the over and over again and not run out of areas to sketch!

  5. I agree Gail. When I returned back to Portland there were so many images in my head that I could have taken a week to sketch. Thanks to all sketchers who came from distant parts to contribute to this wonderful experience.
