Palace Party!

Nine intrepid sketchers, including friends from far afield, came together for a warm and pleasant indoor sketching session as guests of the historic Palace Hotel.  The staff were welcoming as always and the potential subjects were plentiful.  Great work by all!

Sunshine and Autumn in Port Gamble

There was a good turnout of Urban Sketchers for our Port Gamble sketch outing on Oct. 28, including guests from north Kitsap.  We lucked out with a beautiful day and lots of fall colors.  Port Gamble is a small historical village with tidy New England style cottages and white picket fences, and plenty of subject matter for our sketch books.

Autumn colors and a bit of Northern New England! USk Port Townsend will be sketching at Port Gamble on Saturday, October 28 from ten to noon. We will meet at the General Store, located at the end of the one-way street in the main town.
