Jet City Washer - Planter

Didn't have much time on the schedule to draw, but Tamra suggested coffee and even if its a quick sketch at Jet City Espresso, I was a happy camper the rest of the day. Funny how therapeutic sketching can be...... yes, this is a subject I've done before. Cool to see things start to green up and bloom.

Vintage Fire Engine

The Anderson Island Fire Department has this vintage truck sitting behind their facility. Love rusty old things.....This will be one of many sketches to try and get it right.

Six Arms - Seattle

Alex and I did our own sketchcrawl today, starting at Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square and then to the Pike-Pine hill climb. This sketch was done of the unique decor at the Six Arms Restaurant and Bar. Lots of whimsical piping and mysterious crows that have (as our waitress Celeste would say a 'Where's Waldo?") quality to their locations all over the establishment. Good food, the porter was OK, maybe a 7 on a scale to 10. No this picture isn't upside down - the crow was.....

Anderson Island Fire Department

For her internship, Tamra is developing a website for the Anderson Island Fire Department. While she was there taking pictures I got to sketch in and around the fire house. The firemen all have their gear ready to jump into when a call comes in.

Pen and ink with watercolor.

Seattle Urban Sketchers Gathering

Our February gathering found us at Hale's Ales in Ballard. It wasn't a huge space but it was warm. This sketch was done near the entrance looking back to the brewing area.

Pen and ink with watercolor in the Marty book.
