Today was rather dark and hazy, with smoke still in the air. The light was quite flat but we didn’t have rain as predicted, though we felt a few drops. The Friday group from Urban Sketchers Seattle met at Meadowbrook Pond. It was a very still and peaceful place. Even though many people walked through, it remained quiet.
I liked the roof line of this structure. It was a popular subject today. The crow landed, so I just had to “put a bird on it”.
I walked further into the park to find this sculpture. I was unable to later find any information about it, though one of the locals indicated it is a depiction of the sun.
After the “throw down” and group photo, a few of us headed to the Wedgewood Ale House & Cafe, which was recommended by a local. It was a good suggestion as we all enjoyed delicious fish and chips. We sat on the patio so I sketched this portion of the sculptural fence.
