Drizzly August Morning at Gasworks

One of the sketchers in our Friday group commented that we are the hardy, dedicated ones, to show up on such a day of dampness and drizzle.  And one proved that later when she pulled out her umbrella and continued to sketch!

I had a hard time choosing a many viewpoints and angles, and a rich variety of subject matter.  But I finally settled on a muted Seattle skyline, with the park and some "gasworks" in the foreground.  I sat partly under one of the shelters, but even so, as I started to paint my sky, some of the fine mist landed on my sketch.  And the whole time I kept reminding myself, "it's August!!  Just 4 days earlier, it was 96 degrees!!"

  1. Peggy, this is a beautiful panorama! The colors, color density, the layering of foreground-middle-background all work great! Ciao!
