The Friday ad hoc group of the Seattle Urban Sketchers met Friday (Aug 12) at South Lake Union Park. While the afternoon temperature climbed to over 90 degrees, our morning sketching time was sunny and comfortable. It was another perfect Seattle summer day (oops, shhhh, don’t tell anyone; we don’t need more people moving here!). We welcomed Tina back from cold and rainy England!
I used my new Orca card for cheaper fares for the first time today! 🙂
I did a quick wander around the section of the park I’ve not walked before. There is construction of a new Wooden Boat Center education building going on. The art on the banners looked very familiar…..
It’s by our own Stephanie Bower!
I first sketched a view of the bridge. Earlier, during my walk around, I’d seen a Great Blue Heron on it!
By now it was 1145 and getting warmer. I sat in the shade to do this quick sketch of some bright flowers with a bit of the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) in the background.
Sharing sketches and our group photo (taken by John):
