The Urban Sketchers Seattle Friday ad hoc met at Jefferson Park. It as raining heavily as I drove there but I hoped for the best. Soon after our 10am meeting time, it stopped raining. The Luck of the Sketchers!
However, it was still a bit chilly, especially after our hot summer. There was quite a breeze, too, so I needed to clip my sketchbook pages down.
I sketched the lookout tower from the hill above the playground. I was tempted by the slides but resisted. It is the enclosed slide that is in the foreground of this sketch.
Then I walked up the hill to sketch the cairn (definition: a mound of rough stones built as a memorial or landmark, typically on a hilltop or skyline.”) I also knew them in North Yorkshire and the Lake District of England as directional indicators.
