Sketchy Wednesdays

Gigharborartblog There were Berol Prismacolor markers, acrylics, pencils and pastels, among other media in Skansie Brothers Park in Gig Harbor Aug. 2. 
The event was one where the Peninsula Art League pays a model every Wednesday to try to sit still while local artists or would-bes try their hand at the easel and the art implement.
Once again, I was too chicken to draw but I was liking what I saw: Keith Campbell, this day’s model, sat artfully composed, fully clothed and oh-so-still atop a pallet, a quilt, a chair and Mexican blanket.  I would have been itching to sketch any of those, but the artistes were more facially-minded. Music softly played while a minor throng of people strolled the waterfront, a couple of families milled about, and the sun contemplated peeking out from the clouds.
Even if we had been enjoying full-sun, the event would have happened under the same structure that sheltered us, as it will happen on Wednesdays through the summer.
Barbara Patterson, working the Prismacolor action, laughed that she’d been with her trainer today, and if I took a picture, to make sure her she looked slim.  I said I’d do my best to make her fingers look buff.  Lita Dawn seemed to be in the know about the event, and impressed the heck out of me with her luminous pastel-technique.
Next time? I’ll pick up a writing implement other than scribbley pen. â€" Jessica Corey-Butler
