SketchCrawl #31 Seattle Urban Sketchers April Event

We got together at the Amgen Footbridge at the north end of Elliott Bay. It was a great turnout and we were rewarded with a rare stretch of time with no rain (though I inhaled a colony of pesky gnats).

This sketch is of a fishing boat docked at the Smith Cove Waterway. I will add some color and finish under the dock when time permits. Great to have fellow Highline students Val Thompson, Alex Poorman, and Brian Mason join us. Hope they get the bug and want to become regulars.

I got in some urban hiking for this event, got off the bus at Benaroya Hall in downtown and walked the 2.5 miles through Olympic Sculpture and Myrtle Edwards Parks to get to our rendezvous. It is a beautiful region we live in (when it's not raining.....).

Pen and ink with grey marker in the Eileen VB sketchbook.

Stearman PT-134 Kaydet Trainer (1937)

I was trying not to be so obvious with the second plane. This is the sketch for a watercolor painting due in next week's illustration class. There still are a lot of things to work out.....
