Joining forces at Wintergrass

This was the 4th year running that Urban Sketchers Seattle Friday group sketched at Wintergrass, the bluegrass festival in Bellevue.  However, this year we were joined by a few sketchers from Tacoma!  In fact, most of the sketchers were from Tacoma.

For some reason, this year I wasn’t that interested in sketching musicians jamming in the hallways.  So I took the skyway across the street to sketch “Fiori” the glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly in Lincoln Square.  Behind the spikes of purple glass is a glass panel waterfall that stretches 3 floors high.

I did find one group jamming away and made a quick sketch in the pocket Stillman and Birn Beta.  Both Frances and Beverly sketched this group from opposite sides.

    Kate, I really admired the colorful Jamming Bluegrass group drawing you did on Friday: the “group-ness was captured in an activity that was constant movement of arms and instruments. The colors were subtle yet bright and cheerful. Well done. It looked like fun.

    Great job on the Chihuli glass and the musicians. Something to satisfy on two levels.
