Sunday @ Alki

 The weather was perfect for a morning sketching before getting back home to watch the big USA World Cup soccer game in the afternoon.  I enjoyed exploring in West Seattle a bit since I live in the north end of Seattle and don't get down to Alki much.  Which is one of the many benefits of the sketch outings; seeing wonderful new places around the Northwest!

 First I captured the beachfront, waterfront walkway (with strollers), family gatherings and the many other sketchers in my view.

I have been fascinated with old metal and neon signs and so I headed to the old Homestead Restaurant for a rooftop sketch of their unusual sign.

On my way back to the beach for the sharing time I stopped for a quick side-street sketch of one of the many restaurants along Alki.

Finally before heading home I stopped to sketch the newly restored totem pole at the Log House Museum.
Kay had done such a fantastic sketch that she shared when we all laid out our sketches, I wanted to sketch it also to wrap up a fun morning.


  1. Wow -- all beautiful sketches, David. You're so prolific during the sketchouts!

  2. Great series David, very much appreciate the two page layout and the people capture.

  3. Great going! I like your touch and choice of subjects. Thanks. Frank B
