Sketching in Georgetown

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.

All my photos from the day are here.
