New public art

My suburb, Renton, has placed new public art over the summer. The new mural(s) have involved community members. I’d previously sketched and written about the “Black Lives Matter” street painting. This is the Trussell Bridge Mural on Houser Way N near the Liberty Park Skatepark and the Renton Community Center Entrance.

Yesterday, in between blessedly welcome rain showers, I went out to sketch this location.

Since I was next to the skate park I sat on the bench to watch the young folk practice. For speed of sketching, I used water soluble graphite and some watercolor pencil. Rain sprinkles cut short my sketching.
