Plein Air – Urban Sketchers at the University of Washington Waterfront

Painting at the UW WaterfrontI’m trying to paint from life every day to better my eye as well as technique. Today I tried out Urban Sketchers – Seattle and I think it’ll be great. They pick some great sites around Seattle and then at the end of the session, there’s a little share. About 20 people of all ages and backgrounds were there.

It’s part of a global non-profit organization that encourages people to sketch and paint. There’s no cost to join. Complete beginners are welcome. At the end people put their sketchbooks down for a show and tell. Professionals were sketching alongside amateurs and students.

I took a photo of our site before we left. When I got back I was amazed how much photos miss.  I understand better why it’s good to paint from life every day.
