Edmonds Sketch Crawl

Sometimes sketch moments are sitting in "spitting" rain for a couple of hours while trying to sketch with waterproof Uniball pen. Black splots of ink litter the sketch like bugs. I huddled under my raincoat as an awning but eventually gave up.

As I walked up Main Street, I saw these pots of geraniums with stunning blooms contrasting against the white siding of the barber shop.  I sat under a tree on the sidewalk to paint this scene, glad to be out of the rain sprinkles. However, the aphids were soon dropping out of the tree and crawling all over my paint palette.

A huge turn out of sketchers! Thanks to the organizers for this "crawl"!


  1. Carleen, I love the one of the waterfront and the ferry in the background to captured the depth and added the person in the front for foreground.

    1. Thanks, Gail. (some day I will figure out "reply" vs "comment" on this site)
