WISk at Windjammer Park

Whidbey Island Sketchers had a windy sketch meet at Windjammer Park in Oak Harbor yesterday. Regardless, a fun time was had by all. The Windmill there is a great subject, but very difficult to draw. After one attempt we opted for more comfortable sketching conditions at Flyers, an Oak Harbor sports bar. More fun of course!
If you're in the neighborhood and looking for something to do this weekend, Oak Harbor's Holland Happening festival is in full swing. And check out the sketchers delightful versions of the windmill at our WISk blog. Here are mine...

At Flyers...



  1. I love sketching people! And I think it's amazin how you work in watercolor on the spot!

  2. Yes, sketching people is fun. Especially in restaurant environments where they sit fairly still and are naturally posed. Thanks, watercolors are fast and direct.

  3. Wow that whole double page spread of people is amazing - too scary for me to attempt.
    Love the windmill.

  4. Thanks, Sue, for your nice comments. Admittedly, the scene was overwhelming. So a lot of license was taken in the arrangement.

  5. wonderful portraits and like the wind mill also, your colours and brush strokes are very inspiring
