|6/10/19 Gas Works Park|
Gas Works Park is my go-to when warm weather finally arrives. Of course, I’ve sketched there in all seasons and weather, including rain and surprising sunshine, but in the summer, my favorite park represents the best of Seattle. It’s one of our favorite places to bring out-of-town visitors. Lake Union, a marina, the Space Needle-centered skyline, grassy Kite Hill, those steampunkish gas works – I never run out of things to sketch.
The afternoon that I sketched this, it was 73 degrees with a typical lake breeze, and the sky was nearly cloud-free. Hallelujah – at long last, summer is here!
