One of our Friday Sketchers regulars lives on Capitol Hill. She suggested we have lunch and sketch at the Six Arms. The weather cooperated as it was raining so it was nice to have an indoor venue for our regular sketch meeting. We heard later that one of our number wasn’t sure of the location or the name of the pub. She asked directions to the “Six Legs”, hence the title of this post.
I took the express bus all the way to the Convention Center which was just 3 or 4 blocks from the pub. I was early, so went in to the Convention Center to look for something to sketch out of the drizzle. Looks like Tina had the same idea.
We did some sketches there together.
On up to the McMenamins pub. We had a nice lunch first and then spread out to sketch. It was a good change to actually be sitting mostly together as we worked. There was some consulting going on. Peggy taught us a new way to splatter paint.
I did three sketches:
The namesake for the place: six arms = Shiva
As usual, we shared our work.
