Sketching at Aliki Beach

The weather was perfect, though Tina quipped that only in the Pacific NW does one wear fleece to the beach.  But for me, 70 degrees with a breeze off the sound was just fine.   There were over 20 sketchers for our outing to Alki Beach in West Seattle.

I’d sketched beach scenes earlier in the year so I went straight to something I’d spotted on my previous trip.  I liked this fish sculpture over a restaurant.

And then, of course, I had to sketch the small version of Lady Liberty,  as many others did this morning.  “The Statue of Liberty, a small replica of the original “Liberty Enlightening the World” in New York City, was a gift from Reginald H. Parsons and the Seattle Council of the Boy Scouts of America in 1952.”  While I was sketching, a crow landed on the very top of the torch so I included it.

We gathered to share sketches….

…. and then had our group photo

A few more photos here.
