Meadowbrook Pond

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.
