Vashon sketch outing

Urban Sketchers from the Tacoma and Seattle groups met up yesterday (7/18/14) for an Ad Hoc Sketch outing to Vashon Island.  Darcie was our gracious host for most of the day.

After meeting at his home, we dispersed to sketch around the island.  Three of us went out to sketch the Pt. Robinson lighthouse.  I sat on some drift wood on the beach for this view.

We reconvened for sharing, a group photo and sack lunches.

Some left at that point.  Others stayed to continue sketching.  Many of us just stayed to sketch all the interesting corners of Darcie’s patio!

Thank you to Darcie for hosting us.  It was so peaceful there on Vashon Island.  I felt like I’d had a retreat in serene surroundings.

All the photos are here.
