You'll end up in my sketch!

David, one of our members, made special arrangements for us to be able to sketch inside the historic  Stimson-Green mansion.  It is owned now by the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation.  It is located in Seattle's First Hill neighborhood and was built 1899-1901.  It displays an historically intact interior.     

This was the venue for my very first sketch outing with Urban Sketchers, back in February 2012!  I was interested to go back and see how far I've come.

My first choice was an upstairs room.  It might have been a bedroom since there was a bath connected.  Today it seems to be a parlor.  I initially wanted to sketch the corner with the period table and chair along with the artifacts on the table.  Just as I was about to start, Natalie sat in the chair.  I warned her she would end up in my sketch!   And then Steve came in and set his stool in the bathroom!  Both ended up in my sketch.



Then I sketched some details of the huge fireplace in the sitting room downstairs. 



We shared our sketches around the large dining table.   It was a large group today.  Perhaps the good turnout was a combination of the chilly rain and the opportunity to see this historic home.
