Fishermen's Memorial, Ballard

Both Plein Air Painters of Washington and Urban Sketchers Seattle were at the Fishermen's Terminal in Ballard this morning. There were visitors joining us from Michigan as well as familiar faces, returned from their travels.

My sketches of the Memorial Sculpture and jar of flowers.
There was quite a lot of visiting and catching up to do, so I only got these two sketches done today. I chose the figure at the top of the memorial. The elongated column combined with the raised arm of the fisherman tops out at an overall height of thirty feet. In the pavement, eleven feet south of the base of the sculpture, you will find the engraved memorial tiles.
