Sketching with WSU students at Olympic Sculpture Park

It was a fun morning sketching with the WSU interior design students and WSU instructors Bob Krikac, Kathleen Ryan, Linda Johnson.  About 40+ students, their instructors  and a handful of Seattle Urban Sketchers dotted the Park.  I hope someone who took pictures will post it on our blog.  I walked around for about a half an hour trying to find a place I haven't sketched.  I found this spot near the Claes Oldenburg Typewriter Eraser.  A view through the trees.  I was intrigued by the peek-a-boo view of the sculpture and the trail beyond.
The second sketch I did in about 5-10 min. before we had to meet up again and watercolored at home.
This was the view of the park looking south.  You can see the Calder Eagle sculpture to the right of the sketch.

  3. Gail, I always love your colors. The eraser sculpture is one of my favorites.

  4. Thanks all for the comments. Kathleen it was great seeing so many eager students sketching. The next generation hopefully getting the sketching bug! Thanks for having us join you!

  5. Thanks to all the Urban Sketchers that were able to join us! It was great to be able to see experienced artists doing what they love. I am now inspired to go buy some water colors and use them in my future sketches!

  6. Gail,
    Thanks for making this happen for us on Saturday. It was a wonderful experience to be joined by the Urban Sketchers Seattle group for our morning sketch crawl at the sculpture park. I am impressed by everyone's sketches from that day and hope that we can join the group again in the future.

  7. These rock, as always, Gail. I like your Eraser better than the original :)
