Sketch Day in Olympia

What a treat to have so many sketchers in town - to share some of my favorite haunts. I don't often sketch on the Capitol Campus but once in a while I head up the hill to attempt the daunting task.

The last time was there was May 22, the day of the teacher's walk-out. The demonstrators filled the capitol steps with signs announcing, "It's time!" (to fully fund the schools). On that day I didn't have time to finish the sketch, not having enough room to fit the top of the dome on the page. Yesterday I finished the drawing by taping another sheet to the original.


After finishing I walked across to the Korean Memorial where the wreath laying ceremony commemorated a number of veterans who had served in that war. It was quite a nice ceremony. 


We migrated to the market, the place I most often sketch in Olympia. The peppers have arrived - not the full range of varieties, but it's a start.


Thanks to Kate Buike for organizing the day. I hope we can do it again sometime.

  3. Love these sketches, Jane. I have been admiring your market sketches for a long time and couldn't wait to see this place in person. Great idea, adding more paper to extend your sketch, and another wonderful drawing!
