Feasting on scenery at Ballard Locks

Sketched Sept. 2, 2012
Not many Seattle locations are as visually stimulating as the Ballard Locks. Just think of everything you can see there: fine engineering in action, boats of all shapes and sizes, a bascule bridge, trains, the cycle of salmon life, public art, people, gardens, you name it.
During my most recent visit, I filled a sketchbook spread with a little collection of small drawings in an attempt to capture as much of the scene as I could. You can see some of them enlarged below:
