I did this sketch of the dormant popcorn booth called Popcornucopia. It has been part of the International Fountain landscape for as long as I can remember.

Tamra and I went over to Central Washington University to watch Kiersten and the CWU Marching Band perform at halftime of the football game. So windy.
This was the last sketch in the Stillman and Birn Beta series sketchbook. Pen and ink with watercolor.

Though there was an Urban Sketcher event going on in the Bus Tunnel, my girls were going to a concert at Benaroya Hall a bit later so we decided to commute in together. A brisk beautiful fall day in Seattle made for a busy Post Alley and often making the subject matter dissapear. The young entertainer was quite good and his dog would sing on command.
I had tested a new ink pen (disposable) on paper before I did this sketch - no bleeding. What I didn't do was test in on the watercolor paper of my sketchbook. With the exception of the door, I was going to have to be satisfied with shading using water and a brush pen.

Though I don't use it very much, I very much like this tiny sketchbook (3"x4") made by Pentalic. It's small enough not to be noticed by passers by or your sketch subject if it is someone you don't know. Not sure about the format - putting a bunch of sketches on one page, we see how it goes.
