Urban Sketchers Tacoma has never been to Fort Steilacoom. Though it was an unusual day and time, there were still a dozen sketchers. The weather was so perfect that everyone elected to sketch outside.
In retrospect, I didn’t find it that interesting. It mostly consists of several buildings that were living quarters and nearly all look the same.
Since it’s also on the grounds of Western State Hospital, I chose a view of a tower from a 1959 building. The flags are the USA, POW/MIA and the Pride Flag, since it’s now June and Pride month.
There was a tent set up but it wasn’t being used. There were some re-enactors walking back and forth on the street but they didn’t seem to be doing anything organized.
