Craven Farm on a Foggy Morning


It’s what I would call a low sketch-to-mileage ratio.

According to Google maps, Craven Farm in Snohomish is only about 35 miles north of Seattle, but I got a little lost, so it took me more than an hour to get there. What with being late and standing in line for the Porta-potties, I managed only one sketch – thus, the low ratio.

Nonetheless, it was a fun place to sketch. Craven is no ordinary pumpkin farm; I’d call it a “destination” pumpkin farm complete with a haunted barn, games, concession stand and lots of props and Halloween vignettes for kids to pose next to for their parents’ cameras. And even though tights and down jacket might seem like overkill, I was happy I had put them on!
