This afternoon I did my second stint as “sketcher in residence” at MOHAI. This is part of the continuing exhibit by Urban Sketchers founder and the “Seattle Sketcher: Gabriel Campanario. The exhibit is called “Drawn to Seattle: The Work of Seattle Sketcher”
Each Saturday one of us is there to demonstrate sketching, encourage others and provide information. There were not many visitors, perhaps because it was a very pleasant day outside. I did have some discussion with a couple visitors and two young women sketched for a few minues. I also met a watercolor artist who came down from further north to see the exhibit. She is Michelle Cooper. She sketches with the Anacortes Sketchers. Coincidentally, Ingrid, one of her students, was there also.
I did 2 sketches myself. The first was outside, before my scheduled time. Center for Wooden Boats volunteers were offering model sailing boats to sail on the pond for a donation.
I worked very slowly on this next sketch. Since traffic was very light in the gallery, I decided to stay inside and interact with the few who came through. This is a view out one of the gallery windows.
On the way back to the light rail station, I stopped to get this image of Space Needle, monorail tracks with the train moving away.
Ah. WordPress informs me this is my 500th post!
