Foss again

After two beautiful days of sun and relatively warm weather, it was just too much to ask for it to continue for our sketch outing to Foss Waterway Seaport museum.  We’ve sketched there before.  Though it is a large place with many artifacts, it just does not interest me that much.

But today I was interested in seeing the whale skeleton I’d heard the students at a local high school had assembled as a class project.  The “Stadium High School Articulation Team” put together this Humpback Whale!  It hangs dramatically from the ceiling and creates an equally dramatic shadow.

Once I finished it, there was still quite a bit of time left.  I wandered about trying out different compositions of collections in my head.

Shared sketches and group photo.
