Seattle Aquarium

More sketches from the Seattle Aquarium as we visited on Garfield's Parent night. Here is a sketch that I started at the Aquarium and didn't have time to watercolor.  So I did it from memory later.  I did several passes trying keep myself from over painting. So I am showing the different stages of development from ink to watercolor.
Third pass adding value to the concrete structure and shadows.

Second Pass Adding people in the foreground.

First pass focusing on the view from the windows.

Another view of the Fishtank at the Seattle Aquarium

Last night was Garfield's Parent night at the Seattle Aquarium.  All the students take Marine Biology this semester were to take their parents around and show off their knowledge about Marine biology. So our son was our tour guide.  Here is a sketch from yesterday.

Memorial Day Sketches

I spent some time at the Seattle Aquarium on Memorial Day with my son.  He needed a ride there so he could do a Marine Biology project.  He knows I am always game to go to some interesting place to sketch....I also had the car.  Click to see second sketch.
