Went to our dentist's office this morning with my son and while waiting for him to finish, sketched some colorful fish that were in the tropical fish tank.

Sunday Seattle Urban Sketchers took the ferry over to Bainbridge Island for some sketching, painting, eating and some did a little wine tasting. All in all a good day for it though it always takes longer than you think when you are on Ferry Schedule.

I love how bridges create these framed views. I have been wanting to paint this bridge for a long time.
It is located where Interlaken Blvd. crosses over 26th Ave. East which is along the bike trail through Montlake. This is an old bridge that creates a gate way into Montlake on the bike path. The yellow decidous trees on the other side of the bridge sparkle on a sunny day as you are looking through the bridge.

Thursday some students from the UW and I went to the Japanese Tea Garden to sketch.
It was a challenge to sketch landscape instead of building and urban spaces. I will have to try that more.
