Next stop in Tacoma: Fort Nisqually

Sketched Oct. 14, 2012
That quick excursion around Tacoma I was telling you about last week sure turned out to be educational. Another highlight of the unplanned drive towards Point Defiance Park was coming across the Fort Nisqually Living History Museum. Have you been there?
The grounds include two restored buildings from the original Fort Nisqually, the first European settlement in the state, established in 1833 by the Hudson Bay Company in what is now the city of DuPont.
The staff and volunteers dressed in period clothing add a theatrical element to the museum that I would have loved to sketch. But not having that much time, I was just happy to fill the facing page of my Stillman and Birn sketchbook. I used a Pilog G-Tec pen, which has become one of my favorite tools for fast sketching on the go lately.
