In the final days of 2015, we flew to Washington State to celebrate Julia’s birthday (which is also known as New Year’s Eve in the rest of the world).
Although it was quite chilly in Washington (by Californian standards anyway) we were blessed with some beautiful sunny weather, and Julia and I both did a little sketching near the Winslow Wharf Marina on Bainbridge Island, where Julia’s family lives. Alas, despite new coats gloves and scarves (bought specially for a Washington winter) we were only able to fit in that one chilly sketch session before the cold got too much for us. Thereafter, we caught the Ferry several times across Puget Sound for beautiful sunny trips into the wonderful city of Seattle, one of my very favourite American cities.

Jamie, you have perspective so wired! down to the slanted arms & back on the bench!

Thanks, Ed. I was trying to capture a certain muted light of that particular day, before the sun came out.
Beauti Mate! Happy Australia Day.
Happy Oz day to you and your crew too!
I really love your observational work.
Thanks Sweetheart. I’ve learned a lot about observational drawing from YOU.
a challenging composition…well done, it has a great mood.
Thanks Deane. I’d like to take the credit for choosing a tricky composition. But the truth is it was the view from a bench to sit my gimpy arse on.
