Back to the MOHAI

For the second day in a row, I was back at MOHAI – this time in the company of 44 other Seattle Urban Sketchers. On this quiet morning before “the” game (I won’t even bother naming it), we sketchers had the museum practically to ourselves. It was fun to look around and see sketchers everywhere.

Since yesterday I focused on the views outside MOHAI, today I sketched three colorful Seattle icons on the main floor: the bright pink Lincoln Toe Truck (next to Gail sketching), the original Rainier Brewery R, and the 1919 Boeing B-1 mail carrier (Boeing’s first commercial plane). I sketched all three icons last May when I first visited MOHAI in its new location, and these eye-catching images from Seattle’s past are still fun to sketch.

I had only about 10 minutes left before our meeting time – enough for one more. I was looking down over the railing from the second floor when I spotted Dan sketching next to the front admissions counter.

Thanks to Gail, Jane, Gabi and MOHAI for arranging a great sketchout!


  1. Wow...44 other sketchers! That's quiet a group. I love the accordion sketchbook and these great icons. You had a productive two days!

  2. Sketching with 44 other people must be amazing. We consider ourselves lucky if we get a dozen to our worldwide sketchcrawls. Great sketches, Tina.

    Cheers --- Larry
