theTravelsketcher this week – May 14, 2021

Good week but not as much sketching due to time spent working on a wall mural commission, new territory for me but thanks to Procreate on iPad it is coming together.

Liechtenstein is a place that I know very little about, but they do have quite the castle, so I did a sketch of the part of it that is on a steep cliff, pretty hard to attack from this side at least.

One of my sisters-in-law, though born in Iowa, mostly grew up in Homer, Alaska. Her birthday was on Tuesday so I did a sketch for a card of the Salty Dawg Saloon, an institution on the Homer Spit. Her sister and nieces lived there for a time as well, so Homer has a bit of history in Tricia’s family.

On Wednesday I made it back to Uptown Espresso in Magnolia. Sitting outside sketching and people watching is quite European.

Had amazing fish and chips and the Highliner Public House at Fisherman’s Terminal. Did a sketch on a small Pentalic Sketchbook , it has been a long time since I have sketch on the 3.5″ x 5.5″ size. To think this was the only size I carried with me for most of my time traveling.

The news today is that CDC, Biden, and Governor Inslee all announced that masks are no longer needed for vaccinated folks, for most situations. It has been a long time coming so I am thrilled to be able to move around more freely.

I hope you are vaccinated and able to start getting out more, and be sure to stick a sketch pad in your pocket, should be some good moments to capture now.
