Uptown Port Townsend, November 24th

The morning was crisp, gray, and dry – but uptown Port Townsend was bustling with the Farmer’s Market, annual Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair, dog walkers, joggers, and urban deer.  And last but not least, a hearty group of Port Townsend Urban Sketchers braving the crowds and cold for a morning of sketching, followed by show & tell, finger foods, and tiramisu (yum!) at Joyce’s house.  We sketched views of Chezemoka Park, uptown buildings and homes, yard sculptures, and a maritime view across the Strait to Whidbey Island.  Thanks to Joyce for hosting!
