Next Sketch Outing

A bit of Nature at Ballard Locks
We had such a perfect day at the Ballard Locks on Friday, July 3rd. It was the perfect place to tolerate the hot sun, with pleasant breezes from the Sound offering relief. Most of us chose to do some version or viewpoint of the huge iron lifting railroad bridge the spans the entrance to Puget Sound. And so I found a view that catered to my bias for Nature, as I was able to sit behind some fireweed.
I really like this sketch -- the detail of the bridge and foreground flowers tie together so well, drawing the eye toward the bridge focal point, while the more suggested foliage, and the handling of sky and water give it a lovely loose feel overall. Wish I could have joined you there but this heat is defeating my outdoor sketch efforts of late. Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
