More sketching at the Museum

Sketching with Don Colley and a small group of Urban Sketchers at the Museum of Flight was a good end to my 11 day art marathon.

I met up with Frances and F. as we were all there early.   I sat to sketch this large view of this historic aircraft.  Then left to meet the group at 1pm and returned to my spot to finish the sketch.  In the mid-1920’s, the Boeing Model 80 was one of the first passenger aircraft.  It first flew in 1928 and carried 12 passengers.  This 80-A carried 18.  This is the only surviving example of the Model 80 series.

My second sketch was a view I’ve often thought to sketch.  It’s in a staff only bridge over the lobby and looks down on this reproduction aircraft.  This is my favorite of the day.
