Musical Hat in Georgetown

7/10/16 Hat in Oxbow Park

For the second year, Urban Sketchers Seattle took part in the Georgetown Garden Walk, an annual event that culminates with music and art in Oxbow Park. While I enjoy gardens as much as the next sketcher, I knew from last year that they would be crowded and difficult to sketch in, so today I went directly to the park instead. Like last year, I couldn’t resist another sketch of at least the hat part of the legendary and historic Hat ‘n’ Boots. Even better, a jazz band was performing under the hat!

In addition to us sketchers, lots of plein air painters also found Hat ‘n’ Boots to be an inspiring subject. I loved looking around the park and seeing sketchbooks and easels everywhere.

  1. Nice Tina! That is some big Hat! It does provide a lot of shade. I am glad they saved it!

    1. Thanks, Gail! I've sketched some part of Hat n' Boots three times now, but I never seem to get tired of it!
