I’ve sketched at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park twice before. It was over 80 degrees so there were lots of people out in the sun. Some were on the grass sun bathing. I’d forgotten sun screen on Saturday so already have a sun burn. I sat in the shade of one of the picnic shelters and sketched this view of the dock and shelter jutting out into Lake Washington. Olympic mountains can be seen peaking from behind the hills over the lake.
I’ve been keeping in mind the lessons from the Mt. Vernon workshop. I’m still having trouble deciding in what areas to preserve the white. I think this one is a little less over worked than others I’ve done. The drawing of the building seems stiff and not quite right. I like the mountains behind the green hill, though.
