Whale Bones and Toby's

I arrived at Local Grown and was delighted to meet two sketchers that came from Anacortes, Missy and Aleli. I was hoping they'd join us. They're great fun and I hope we can rendezvous often for sketching adventures. Got in a sketch of William, the owner of Local Grown, pulling coffee. Then ventured out to the lobby to draw Rosie the whale. Bones are great fun to draw. So organic. We then went to Toby's for wine and fish and chips. Got in a few more sketches...



  1. These-sketches-are nice. The values and body expressions are great.

  2. I agree. But the bones -- oh the Rosie bones - that one is a masterpiece! Perfect feeling of depth and dramatic colors. Love it!

  3. Thanks, Lois and Lisbeth! I like Rosie too. I'd like to spend more time drawing all the skeletons on the wharf.
