I think this is my favorite new place to sketch in Seattle. It has the obvious beautiful skyline view but also many opportunities to sketch industrial and decaying marine subjects that always interest me. Jack Block Park (run by the Port of Seattle) isn't easy to find but worth the effort.
Jack Block was a former Port Commissioner and the site was a wood treatment plant and shipbuilding site that was so contaminated that it became a Superfund site cleaned up by the E.P.A. in 1994.
This sketch was pen and ink with a watercolor wash in a Moleskine sketchbook.
Beyond family, I'd say that art, sports and the quest to cook a great meal are the big priorities in my life.
I am 56 years old, and live in the Seattle area with my wife of 29 years. I have a beautiful daughter who shines as an EMT in Pierce County and I live in the suburbs, but truth be told, would rather be a city or country boy.
I love a good game of hoops and nothing makes me happier than the opportunity to draw and paint.....Time stops.
I like my brew dark, that goes for coffee and beer.
