Full Agenda

My schedule for today was rather full. First, I went to the Museum of Flight to see the presentation on the Voyager spacecraft by a fellow volunteer. She is Maria and a high school student! It was very well attended.

I got a quick sketch in as she was talking with the little ones about Voyager. Then she led them in making paper models.

Next I went to the newly opened Starbucks Reserve in SoDo. I think it might be good for a sketch outing. It was rather noisy and I would use my ear plugs if I was going to be sketching there for long. The coffee I tried – “Ethiopian” something or other – was more drinkable than any Starbucks I’ve had. But wow, half way through I had too much of a caffeine buzz and couldn’t finish it!

Then it was on to Daniel Smith Mothership for Watercolor Social. I’d forgotten to bring my usual projects so I just opened Kitsap Humane Society’s Instagram feed and sketched some dogs.

I used Jodi’s suggestion of Payne’s Blue Gray for the splattered spots on this Bluetick Coonhound!
