After the Social Watercolor meeting at Daniel Smith, we headed to Georgetown, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Seattle. It’s one of my favorite places for repeated sketch outings as it has old architecture and a funky, art, vibe.
We had lunch at a Mexican restaurant… the food was good but the ambiance was awful. It was far too loud. There was a good view out the window and some interesting scenes inside. I might have sketched if we’d been better seated.
Signposted on the street was an announcement about an “Italian Festival” happening. What we found was a puzzling display of vintage camper vans, mostly VW’s. We couldn’t figure out what that had to do with Italy. In any case, I enjoyed exploring them. This orange one was my favorite.
We encountered this bowl of candy with a sign that said, “Please do not eat the candy”. I immediately noticed a camera in the window filming people’s reactions. Hmmm. Some sort of social experiment? Searching on the hashtag (#pleasedonoteatthecandy) found nothing.
We also walked through the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall. It is a very quirky place. Many of the vendors have changed since I was last there. I sketched the sign by the street, which was a vision of quirkiness: the baby angel held high on the support for the sunflowers.
