My "sketch the UW campus" project continued this week with a couple of lunch time outings. It takes about 10 minutes to get out of my building and to a suitable sketching location, and with 10 minutes to get back, plus a few minutes here or there for unpacking and packing up supplies, that leaves a mere 30-35 minutes for actual art creation. This does not always work well.
Evidence below: this is More Hall, and it filled up the page too abundantly and got too busy, but I didn't have time to start over, so I went ahead and finished it anyway. Some tourists stopped by to admire it, so at least it pleased somebody.
I do like the tree on the right.
This second one is much more successful. I've been taking my watercolor paints out and about instead of using the watercolor pencils. I think I like this better than the pencils, though it is a bit trickier in terms of transport and set up. I'm working on streamlining that.
This is Mary Gates Hall:
I doubt I'll get any sketching done this coming weekend -- birding outing and party on Saturday, baseball game on Sunday. We shall see.
In other adventures, I got photos of birds on Saturday -- here are some young Pied-billed Grebes hanging out at Magnuson Park restoration ponds. Enjoy!
