Quilcene, WA

I missed the sketchouting last Sunday because I was cleaning our house.  This week we have family in town and for the last two days were staying at a friend's cabin on Dabob Bay in Quilcene.  It was beautiful and relaxing.  We had a seafood fest last night... Clam chowder, Clam linguini,  Crab and oysters on the halfshell..all harvested by us from the bay.  The one thing you can't depend on is Salmon.  Although they were really have to master how to fish for salmon.  Of course this morning before our family was leaving my husband caught a 24" salmon. 

Here are a couple of sketches I did.  If you want to see more you can look at my blog.

  1. Love these sketches Gail! The marina is such a complex subject and you did a great job capturing it.

    1. Thanks Al,
      Indeed it is complicated. A lot of layers and I simplifies it!

  2. I agree. Really nice handling of a complicated scene. I recognize the location, I'll be up that way tomorrow.

  3. The people make the scene so lively. Very well captured, Gail!

    1. Thanks Gabi, trying to infuse people in my sketches. This was a great opportunity because as they were digging I had great models.
