It's Spring on Clover Island!


The weather has finally warmed up in the Columbia Basin and the Tri-City Urban Sketchers met on Clover Island in Kennewick to sketch outdoors today.  Jim Bumgarner, Cindy Rutherford, Patti Kirsch, Dave Poynter and Patty Gardner met this morning and these are some of our combined sketches.  Some of us (Dave and Jim) drew more than one incredible view!


This is my take on the new lighthouse.  A mom and her little ones rode up on their bikes and Mom posed them on the steps to take their picture.  She was so quick I didn't get her in my sketch!


After sketching we met for lunch at one of the restaurants on the island, Ice Harbor Brewery at the Marina.  A great ending to a great day!


  1. Wow! You got skills Patty and you did that second drawing in no -time! It would be nice for the mom of those three kids to see the picture.

  2. I love your lighthouse, and your condiment sketch. Fun group!

  3. Great lighthouse sketch, Patty. Looks rather "painterly."
