First Sketch Crawl

My first Sketchcrawl with the Seattle Urban Sketchers was 26 February.  As I left home that morning, it started to snow!  It was 37 degrees.  By the time I arrived at the Stimson-Green Mansion in First Hill area of Seattle, it was sunny.  I had a good time sketching, though I found perspective a bit of a challenge.  I managed 2 sketches and many photos.  I met some of the local group and garnered some advice and tips about tools.

Sketches, done with watercolor pencil because I still didn’t have any paints.
