A lunch date with former co-workers took me to Ballard. I took the opportunity to sketch 2 more of the Astronauts On The Town.
First, the Aboriginaut, found inside the Ballard Locks Visitors Center.
The design is based on cave drawings of astronomy by Aboriginal cultures of Australia. The symbols on the suit depict the sun, the stars and the moon along with symbols representing travel. The technique is done with acrylic paint and a dotted pattern.
Then on the the lunch venue. My friends graciously conceded to alter the venue so I could sketch the Astronaut at Ray’s Boat House. We had a delicious lunch on the 2nd story patio with a gorgeous view of the Puget Sound.
That top patio is where we had lunch.
