Folklife is one of Seattle’s well known festivals and is held over Memorial Day weekend. Through 46 years it has remained free of charge. It completely covers the acres and acres of the Seattle Center complex (site of the World’s Fair). The Friday sketching group of Urban Sketchers Seattle has sketched there for some years now, since 2014, I think. Today was no different but the weather was amazing… sunny and almost too warm. This Memorial Day weekend is predicted to be the hottest in 22 years, reaching 85 degrees.
I kept to shady spots to make several small sketches into a montage over my 5 x 8.5 sized page. There was so much music in the air! I met the weaver on the Monorail and asked her where she would be demonstrating.
We met for sharing and a group photo. Tom is missing from the group.
