Urban Sketchers Tacoma met today at Fort Nisqually. We spread out in and around the Fort. This was my 4th trip to the Fort, so I’ve sketched a bit before. Today I first focused on some gourds in the sun. I liked the shadows.
Next I sketched a larger scene, one of the Bastions at the back corner. Fort Nisqually was an outpost of the Hudson’s Bay Company and not a military fort. However, the 4 bastions were for protection from theft and, if necessary, for defense.
Then we got back together to share our sketches.
Then some of us had a picnic lunch together.
