Quintessential Morning at the Market

9/28/13 Platinum Carbon ink, watercolor,  140 lb. Canson Montval paper
Pouring rain at the Pike Place Market: What else can you ask for when you visit Seattle? Vancouver, B.C., urban sketcher and blogger Sigrid Albert is in town this weekend, so Kate organized an ad hoc gathering at the Market to sketch with her this morning. Only three of us – Kate, Lynne and I – had the hardcore Seattle chutzpah to slog through the rivers and lakes forming in the streets to meet up with Sigrid at Rachel the Pig, but it was fun anyway.

140 lb. Canson XL paper
A view window at Sound View Café was the ideal location to sketch the Ferris wheel (barely visible through the weather) on the waterfront, which I have been wanting to do for a while. Then Kate, Sigrid and I decided to sketch each other as we chatted about our respective sketching communities. Sigrid recently organized a growing Urban Sketchers group in the Vancouver area. Maybe the Seattle sketchers should make a field trip across the border for a joint sketchout! Thanks for sketching with us, Sigrid!

See Sigrid's sketch from today on her blog. And Kate's blog includes sketches and photos of the day.
