Today's Friday ad hoc outing was to Occidental Park in the Pioneer Square area. I've been there perhaps once before but today I had more time to explore. I satisfied myself with one sketch and then walked around the area.
credit Vivian with spotting this view first! She didn't stay to sketch
it so I did. She moved on to a beautiful, ivy covered entry way. This
shows the view looking up from Occidental Park. That's the Columbia
Center tower on the left and Smith Tower on the right.
first, I am still enjoying the use of my "scribbler". My first sketch
of the day was on the bus. It's a small Field Notes limited edition
notebook with good paper. My bus ride to the Light Rail was so short I
only had time for this one sketch. Squiggly lines = bumpy ride.
was almost time to meet up again. The band started up for the free
concert. Tubaluba (Jambalaya Brass Rock) performed. It was loud. The
bass notes of the Tuba were rumbling in my chest. But I stood to the
side to get a quick sketch of the tuba player!
On the other side of the page is a sketch inside McCoy's Firehouse Pub with firefighter memorabilia on the wall(s).
We met up to share sketches and get a group photo. We had to go across the street so we could hear each other!
