The Friday Ad Hoc group of Urban Sketchers Seattle went to Magnuson Park
today. It covers a point that extends into Lake Washington. Some
people sketched the climbing wall at the Mountaineer Club. I was
inspired by Mark Ryan's sketch
of the Fin Project
, done the last time USk Seattle was here in May 2012. I was determined to find my way to this sculpture installation. "Made
from submarine fins, this sculptural installation is arranged to
represent a pod of whales. Dedicated in 1998, this art work was created
by John T. Young."
More about Fin Art can be found here.
I had time for 2 sketches.
- Fins and Kite Hill
We gathered again to share our sketches.
I'd battle the traffic through Seattle to get there, I decided to find
Sound Garden. It is on the grounds of the NOAA (National Oceanographic
and Atmospheric Administration). Brochure
installation features pipes that generate muted tones, with the pitch
dependent on the direction and velocity of the wind..... made in 1983 by
Douglas R. Hollis"
I sat in the middle of the installation
to do this sketch. As the wind increased, so did the sounds, which
were quite pleasant.
