Seattle Urban Sketchers has been so good for me because it gets me out there, doing art! Plus, I go to places I would never have gone to on my own, much less think to take my supplies so I could sketch!! Our sketch-crawl at the EMP is one such example, as is the other sketches in today's blog, which are from the Museum of Flight. On my own, it would never have occurred to me to go sketching at the Museum of Flight! In my past art-making, I would always head out to the country, to sketch from nature!
Today, Friday the 8th, I joined a few Urban Sketchers at the Museum of Flight. We were Kate's guests, since she volunteers there. What a huge, varied, and amazing place!! We only scratched the surface in subject matter. And I wandered too much, so I didn't have a lot of time. But finally I found myself in the WWI display, and this "Sopwith Triplane" captured my fancy. A rather challenging viewpoint, for sure!
Since we arrived early before the Museum opened, we pulled out our sketching stuff and sat and froze while we tried to sketch. I chose to keep it simple with a Derwent Graphtint pencil and subsequent wash with my water-brush.
