Sketching in Richland

While visiting family in Richland (WA), I managed to get out sketching on two mornings.  On the first outing, I drove around scoping out potential subjects, and decided to try drawing a dome-shaped house and landscaping:

Next I drove to the bustling "downtown" shopping area, where I was drawn to a shop front with colorful chairs on the sidewalk:

Not far away is Howard Amon Park, where I drew part of the playground area:

On our second outing the next day, I opted to walk instead of drive.  Truman and I strolled about one mile to the bustling "Uptown" shopping center, where there is a bear statue just hanging out on a corner:

We strolled around the shops, and I found another view to sketch:

My last drawing was of the Mormon Church across the street from the shopping center:

I would have done more sketching but could only do stuff outdoors in the mornings (because it reached 80 by noon), and I had to reserve the other mornings for birding and mural painting.  More about the birds coming on Wednesday (Tuesday is a travel day).

  1. I really like that one of the Uptown. I like them all. And you've lived in Seattle far too long if you think 80 is too hot LOL. Hope you have a safe trip home. I know at least one pup that will be super glad to get there!
