#usk10x10

sk_1 2The Seattle Urban Sketchers were out and about yesterday morning in South Lake Union.

I was helping out as one of the instructors, enjoying being surrounded by sketchers, enthusiastic, eager and talented. I love seeing how bold they all drew and painted (with color!)

Plein Air work is gutsy. One’s senses are on fire; so much out there. Editing is key. Once one warms up then selection becomes easier. I could not help adding the murmuration of bird and their feather remnant in the sketch above.

My view looking south, as I was demonstrating foreground, middle ground, background and shape in the landscape, I was so surprised to see all those cranes in the skyline. Seattle’s skyline barely recognizable.

The Space Needle was there to assure that we are still in Seattle and all is well.
