Truman and I headed to Magnuson Park, where I had big plans for sketching all through it, from one end to the other -- but after two hours, I'd only made it a very short way, from the southernmost end by the boat launch to Kite Hill.
I could easily have spent several more hours there if it had been just a little warmer and a lot sunnier. Still, I got some fun sketching in.
Here is the southern end showing the sculpture "Straight Shot" (by Perri Lynch), which features six-foot-high limestone columns with holes bored in them that line up.
Next, I wandered a short ways down a path to a stand of birch trees with one dying madrone, and sketched that:
Not far away stood a few piles of boulders, so I stopped again to sketch one pile:
Truman was bored by now, so we went back to the car and drove to the Kite Hill parking lot for a quick food and water break. Then we tootled over to the art installation called "The Fin Project: From Swords to Plowshares" (by John T. Young), which is composed of submarine fins made to resemble a pod of whales.
There is so much more to sketch at the park -- I'll certainly be back!
