Group sketching at the Museum of Flight

The Friday sketchers group from Urban Sketchers Seattle met at the Museum of Flight today.  It would have been a perfect day for an outdoor outing, but one never knows in March.  I used some of my guest passes to get a limited number of sketchers in for free.

I sketch here all the time.  Today, I let the USk global flikcr pool’s weekly theme of “star
shapes” guide me.  I knew I could find an aircraft with a star!  This is a 1940 prototype
Mustang.

One place I’ve never sketched is the WWI environments.  I wanted to do the trenches exhibit, with it’s crashed aircraft.  But it was just tooo dark.  So I sketched this ruined farmhouse which serves as a theater.
