Space Gallery

Once again, it’s Thursday and the Museum of Flight.  Each time I think I’ve run out of things to sketch near my post at the door, I find something else.  These are the displays with information about Space and space projects.  They are in the Space Gallery.

Curving at the upper right is the payload bay door of the Space Shuttle Full Fuselage Trainer.  The photos on the display boards are collage cut from a photo of the scene.

This is very small:  about 3×5 inches on 90 pound Fabiano watercolor paper.

I doubt there will be a sketch next week.  Boeing employees and their families get in free.  Last year it was a total stampede of visitors.  Even if I stay after my shift to sketch, it will likely be too crowded!
