Journal Stop #10: Washington

Getz Journal No. 10.  This journal begins  with my sessions in the state of Washington. The first image is the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Chinopk, Wash. The countrified image struck me of its simplicity.

Low tide at COUPEVILLE Wharf

Elbey Beach is a long stretch of shore which accumalates much driftwood which can be fun to draw; reminds me of 'pickup stix'...

One of the town's b&b's... this seemed logical for a two page spread, showing the bay in the background.

Detail of the Inn

Inn detail... this was more than a 'half hour sketch'...

Another two pager, The Captain Whidbey Inn, built in 1907 is a wonderful facility. I may just return there to do a workshop at the inn. 

On to my session in Spokane... The town has a great number of unique bridges in the center of town.

Student's work... I don't single out individual students for attention, but I had to call attention to this lady.


Sketch T Ebey Beach... This was simply outstanding! Next, I will be at Virginia City, Montana then Yellowstone Natl Park... Lots of good stuff!

The old power plant has been saved and has many visitors...

Church in Chinook

Penn Cove Overlook,  COUPEVILLE, Wash.  I seek a vantage point where we can get a good view of a portion of the village as the subject, where we might have some shade. The view was from a parking lot. No shade, but the town harbor was in the background.

Admiralty Head Lighthouse, Whidbey Island... One of the prominent landmarks.

The county courthouse is a beautiful architectural example. 

 Monroe Street Bridge... It was easy to get good angles on the bridges and have adequate shade.
