Kelsey Creek Farm Fair

Micron 0.8 pen and gouache on pocket moleskine sketchbook.

Even an urban sketcher like me enjoys a day in the countryside every now and then. My fellow Spaniard ex-pats Mariano and Emilia invited us to go to the 26th Annual Kelsey Creek Farm Fair in Bellevue. We saw horses, a humongous pig, a cow, rabbits, chickens, goats and sheep. Just enough of a dose of farm life to want to come back to the city.

• By the way, there's more activity at the Urban Sketchers blog if you haven't checked it out since Friday's post.

[ Incluso a un dibujante urbano como yo le gusta salir al campo de vez en cuando. Mis compatriotas españoles Mariano y Emilia nos invitaron a ir a la 26th Annual Kelsey Creek Farm Fair en Bellevue. Vimos caballos, un cerdo enorme, una vaca, conejos, gallinas, cabras y ovejas. Una dosis suficiente de vida campestre para querer volver de nuevo a la ciudad. ¶ • Por cierto, hay más actividad en el blog de Urban Sketchers por si no te has pasado desde el post del viernes. ]


  1. Very nice one, Gabi - I love the way you get so much information down with a few lines.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed this day. We did it too and we look forward the next time we meet you and your lovely family.

    Where's Gabi? My wife asked after he disappeared in a flash. Some minutes later he join us again with a smile of satisfaction in his face. Now I understand why ;-)

    By the way, nice sky and nice view!
