Friday Ad Hoc

The Urban Sketchers Seattle Friday ad hoc met at Jefferson Park.  It as raining heavily as I drove there but I hoped for the best. Soon after our 10am meeting time, it stopped raining.  The Luck of the Sketchers!

However, it was still a bit chilly, especially after our hot summer.  There was quite a breeze, too, so I needed to clip my sketchbook pages down.

I sketched the lookout tower from the hill above the playground.  I was tempted by the slides but resisted.  It is the enclosed slide that is in the foreground of this sketch.

Then I walked up the hill to sketch the cairn  (definition:  a mound of rough stones built as a memorial or landmark, typically on a hilltop or skyline.")  I also knew them in North Yorkshire and the Lake District of England as directional indicators.

The group of six brave sketchers:

Kate (me), Ben (visiting from Hong Kong Urban Sketchers),  Gwen, PeggyH, Tina, Robin

  1. Hurrah for you! While you were out there sketching I was in Kirkland, teaching the first of my fall classes. I was torn. Although I love my students, I really missed being out there sketching with you all. I'll catch up with you sometimes on the weekends.
