Whidbey Island

The Friday group from Seattle Urban sketchers planned an outing to join the Whidbey Island Sketchers (WIS) at the studio of a sculptor.  It is Cloudstone Sculpture Park.

I started my day at the shore in Mukilteo, WA before walking on the ferry.  I got in one sketch of a man fishing off the rocks.

Sketch and the cairn I left.

My friend Judi met me at the ferry.  We had a nice visit before going out to the sculpture park.  We stopped at the co-op gallery where Judi shows her work.  Then we had a nice lunch in the charming small town of Langley.

The grounds of this studio and park are huge.  Sculptures are every where in the fields and wooded lands.  I did a bit of wandering around and ended up with two sketches.

The first shows small sculptures next to one of the studio buildings.

I found my next sketch far afield.  Along the way I saw this bunny, which disturbed me at first.  Covered in vegetable matter, I couldn’t tell whether is was actually a dead rabbit.  I dared a close look and saw the plastic eye of a plush toy.

I thought this looked like a henge (think Stonehenge!).  I sat on a rock across the gravel road.  From underneath the rock a tiny mouse ran out and back.  I tried to tempt it out again with a nut so I could get a photo but no luck.

The Seattle sketchers met to share sketchbooks and for a photo

me, Nilda, Tina, Michele, Judi
