Spring seems to have arrived, both by calendar and by weather. It was a beautiful, mostly sunny day that wasn’t too chilly. Urban Sketchers Seattle met at Swanson’s Nursery to enjoy the spring flowers. We sketch there at Christmas time and just this year decided to try another season. It offers lots of out door spaces with interesting arrangements as well as indoor setting if the weather in inclement.
I chose to do a two page spread of several vignettes. Tulips, the Adirondack chairs at the entrance, glass sculpture and plants in the warm cafe and a display of garden sculptures and plants. There are 2 green men and a sun in splendor.
We shared sketches and had our group photo. A few stayed for lunch in the charming on-site cafe.
After lunch, it was really sunny and I wanted to stay to do more sketches. But I felt the need to get on the freeway and past the stadiums before the Bernie Sanders rally-goers were on the road!
