Jack Block Park

This was a perfect day for sketching.  Bright sun and cool breezes.   The Friday group of Urban Sketchers Seattle met at Jack Block Park on the south eastern section of the Aliki point.

I have a new phone and actually put a SIM card in it!  I tried navigation with Google maps.  Despite taking me a very convoluted way to avoid traffic on the I-5, it got me there in 30 min and so I was early.  I sat in the warm sun on a picnic table to sketch these buoys at the edge of the park.

I probably did as much photography as sketching, trying out the camera in the new Nexus 5x.

Tina takes a record shot of her skyline sketch.  A few of us chose the skyline to sketch.  I was one of them:
