With more than 100,000 population, Everett is the sixth largest city in the state of Washington and world famous because of aircraft manufacturer Boeing. It's located 25 miles north of Seattle and not too far from where I live. While I have done some sketches near the Boeing plant in the past, I had never sketched downtown. On Saturday you could see the mountains East and West from Hewitt Avenue. I have to come back for more sketching here. The seaport is one of the largest on the West Coast and serves the U.S. Navy. There was a big Navy ship anchored but I ran out of time to sketch it.

[ Con más de 100.000 habitantes, Everett es la sexta ciudad más grande del estado de Washington y famosa mundialmente porque aquí está la compañía aeronáutica Boeing. Everett se encuentra a unos 40 kilómetros al norte de Seattle y no muy lejos de donde yo vivo. Ya había dibujado anteriormente cerca de la fábrica de Boeing, pero nunca lo había hecho en el centro urbano. El sábado se podían ver las montañas al este y al oeste de la ciudad desde Hewitt Avenue. Tengo que volver para dibujar más. El puerto es uno de los más grandes de la costa oeste y lo utiliza la U.S. Navy. Había un barco de la Navy anclado pero no me dio tiempo a dibujarlo. ]

  2. Really soon you won't have a single spot left to draw in the State of Washington. You do an amazing job at keeping your blog up to date and grasping the essence of that beautiful state through your sketches. Buen trabajo hermano!
