Six Arms

It was our regular 2nd Friday ad hoc sketch outing.  It was also a celebration of Tina’s birthday.  It was a good thing she suggested the Six Arms McMenamins pub in Capitol Hill as it was a little too cold for 2 hours of out door sketching!

As with any McMenamins’, there was a lot of interesting, eclectic stuff to sketch.  We had sketched there once last year.  So this year I took on the sculpture of the 6 armed Hindu goddess from which the pub takes its name.  She was high above me, which created an interesting angle.

We shared sketches and had lunch.

Linda, Tina, Darcy, Warren, Peggy, Cate, Kate (Natalie is missing).

I learned I cannot Draw Under the Influence (Tina’s new definition of “DUI”!).  Since I wasn’t driving, I allowed myself a beer.  Bad idea.  I didn’t feel focused enough to do another sketch!
