Race Week in Coupeville

The WISk group met at the Coupeville Wharf for Race Week. Another great day of fun. I just want to say thanks to Janet, from Connecticut, for joining us. She and her partner are on their way to sail the world from their home base in Puerto Vallarta. Wow! She'll be sketching her journey, so when she posts her work, I'll set a link. Have fun Janet!
I had a delightful conversation with two inquisitive children, Kathleen and Wesley, from Bellingham. They both love drawing so wanted to know more about what we were up to. I was so very impressed with them both because of their thoughtful observations and questions. I was sketching Julie, one of our sketchers, and Wesley took note of that fact. I got in a couple sketches of them watching me draw.

My sketch of Julie sketching and someone watching the boats.

Then after the Race, stopped by the Blue Goose Inn for a pitcher of Sangria. Yum!

  1. Beautiful sangria painting, Kris. And the others are also wonderful. Somehow you totally managed to carry off the dreaded "center plunk". Takes a pro!!
