Urban Sketching at Union Bay Natural Area

first field sketch done with Uniball pen and watercolor, 30 minutes


I went to the "Montlake Fill" last Saturday to find some inspiration for a field sketch as a project for a friend. I remember coming to this area with my dad in the late 1950s when the "dump" was where the "dime lot" is.

I chose this view of the birding snag, Husky stadium and the silt fence and posts marking the new native grass restoration because it represents the contrast of urban and natural use on this habitat.

ps  The author has chosen the first sketch (my favorite)!
