First Urban Sketcher's Post

I am happy to be writing my first Seattle Urban Sketchers post. The past year with this group of amazing artists has been wonderful, and I look forward to many more to come. August found me all over the state of Washington.

            The month started with a trip to Mount Rainier. After losing our way in Puyallup, a group of friends and I worked our way up to Sunrise. Unfortunately, I did not get many chances to sketch as we dodged mosquitoes and deer in the meadows surrounding the lodge. Ironically, the best sketch I produced was a view looking away from Mount Rainier at Sunrise Lodge and the surrounding mountains.

            Once again, my time for sketching was cut short while visiting the Museum of Flight with my brother while he was in Seattle. I got a quick sketch of this rocket test bed in the space gallery before moving on. I produced the other sketch of the F-16 last year while visiting the Flight Museum.

            Finally, I had some focused sketching at the Waterfront Sketch Crawl. My favorite sketch was from the end of Pier 56. This is my favorite spot on the waterfront because it is secluded while offering stunning views of the Puget Sound and Elliot Bay. I was treaty to a view of a refueling cruise ship as Coast Guard patrols and private sail boats buzzed around the behemoth.


  1. Great sketches and stories. Welcome Logan!

  2. Welcome, Logan. Good to see you here! I like the sketches. I think I saw you at the Museum of Flight both times.
