New bridge

I’m behind in posting. I’m behind in general…see below.

This sketch is from Tuesday, 18 September.  I met a couple former co-workers for lunch.  I had some time so I decided this would be a good day to sketch this new pedestrian bridge in Tukwila.  I’ve watched it being built over the Green River during the past several months.  Apparently it’s called the Tukwila Urban Center Pedestrian/Bicycle Bridge

The weather this week has been perfect for sketching!  Bright, sunny, good shadows and just the right temperature (about 70’s [20’s c]).

I’m a little over committed at the moment.  I’ve enrolled in a new 6 week long “Watercolor Rules” Sketchbook Skool  class which started this week.  I’m resigned to getting behind.  Because Inktober will be starting in a couple weeks.  I’ve been watching Craftsy and YouTube videos on ink sketching as I want to improve my hatching technique.  I haven’t watched as many of those as I would like.

So, right in the midst of these projects, I decide to resurrect a weekly drawing group!  Sigh.  It’s the former “AFK Drink and Draw” where we gathered to sketch a cosplay (costumed) model.  I’ve already found a new venue and scheduled the weekly event.  The group as been dormant for about 3 years but the previous models have been messaging me about wanting to join in again. So I’ve got the first few weeks already planned.  It starts October 10.

Then there is sewing.  I’ve got 10 more RareBear kits and already cut out the 10 bear skins.  I’ve also promised a friend I’d make the Folkwear Cheese-maker’s shirt for him and I want to practice it by making one for myself first.  I haven’t used the pattern in decades.

How did I ever have time to be employed full time?

    Wow, you sure are busy! But there are worse things than being overly busy with art-related activities! 😉
