Sketch Crawl #31_near the helix bridge on the waterfront

It was just warm enough to work outside comfortably and the muses held off the rain until we were about to adjourn, so conditions were very agreeable. Everyone had a good time and as always, the sketches are as interesting as they are varied.

I chose the ship at the grain elevator. A dark sky, interesting colors on the ship, the Seattle skyline as a backdrop and the steel loading structure all were elements that fit into my new watercolor sketch program. These sketch crawls are really enjoyable due to the attitude and enthusiasm of the people who attend and Gail's deft hand at bringing the group to a consensus on where to go next.

Looking forward to it...
