MOHAI

We had unexpectedly good weather for our regular Friday sketch outing.  We met at the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI).  Rain was predicted to start about 11, so I did my first sketch out side.  While it never did rain, there was rather a cold wind so I was quite chilled by the time I finished.  I tried only using pencil.

So I had a coffee in the pleasant cafe and sketched the old clock (again).  I really like this clock and have sketched it 2 or 3 times before.  In December 2009, thieves gutted the clock, presumably stealing the copper and metals inside.   A group to which I belong held a fund raiser at the old MOHAI location to help repair the clock.

The sketchers posed outside with the Space Needle visible in the distance behind us.
