Bradner Gardens One

On Friday, the Ad Hoc group of Seattle Urban Sketchers met at Bradner Gardens P-Patch. Our grandchildren came with me and toured the garden on their own as I went around the garden sketching. There were so many things I wanted to capture that I decided to forgo color in favor of getting as many line drawings as I could in the time we would be there. I posted those sketchbook pages the very same day here.

I added watercolor later. To help our little great granddaughter remember the day, I wrote notes in the sketches. Tap or click to zoom if you want to read them.
Although the story is true, my reportage took the form of a fairy tale.
Stay tuned for the rest of the story.


  1. This looks like a wonderful, fun place to sketch!

  2. Thanks, Joan. I would love to try it in every season of the year. I bet Spring and Fall would both be equally fantastic! And you would really be able to see the skyline of the city in the winter.
