That would be Georgetown, a neighborhood of Seattle, WA!
We really lucked out on the weather for Seattle Urban Sketchers outing to Georgetown. We met at All City Coffee, just off Airport Way. I’d done a photo map with locations further afield, near the Hat and Boots. We dispersed and then regrouped 2.5 hours later.
I went straight to the Rock House on Flora Ave. I will return to sketch other views, but I liked the arched entry.
Then I went a couple blocks over to sketch the traffic circle at Warsaw & Carleton, just next to the Carleton Ave. Grocery. Valerie & Diedra were just leaving. They warned me about the tight cornering of the bus as it maneuvers through the traffic circle. I stepped back from the curb each time one went by, with it’s rear wheels just inches from the curb. Marianne stopped to look at what I was doing. She told me she lives in a house down the street that has been in her family for a century. I’ll have to go sketch it next time!
I started this sketch of the Fantagraphics building before the outing started and finished adding color after. It might not be obvious, but there is a “Dog on Duty” in the upper left window! Or so the sign says.
There were 18 of us with, I think; 8 first-timers and one out-of-town visitor. Gail had to leave early so she’s not in the photo.
We shared our sketches on a bench outside the coffee shop.
