Yesterday, Sunday, January 19, I joined Urban Sketchers Seattle at the newly re-opened Burke Museum. The old museum had been torn down and in it’s place was this 3 story, massive building.
Since I wasn’t sure when I might be back, I spent a good deal of time looking through the exhibits. It’s almost overwhelming. A new feature of this museum is the glass that gives visitors the ability to watch staff as they work on the artifacts. I was particularly amused by this sign: “T Rex pelvis (we hope)”!
At end we were quite a large group.
As I spent most of my time wandering, I only did one sketch. Though there was no information about this specific canoe, all the types of paddles were identified. Since only pencil was allowed in the gallery, once I finished the pencil sketch I moved to the Off the Rez cafe to continue working on my sketch with pen and watercolor. I tried some fry bread.
