This past Sunday, the monthly Seattle Urban Sketcher outing was at Suzzallo-Allen libraries on the UW campus, and Nicole and I ventured forth to join them.
Because I had sketched the neo-gothic architecture of the older Suzzallo library quite recently, I decided to avoid its pesky architectural challenges, such as this:
Instead, I went next door to the Allen natural sciences library, which has a lovely fossil in its entryway:
I enjoyed drawing it very much, despite rather poor lighting. Then I sat in the two-story lobby where there are some Native American decorations:
I quickly discovered that they are very difficult to draw -- lots of intricate patterns and detail.
Finally, I sat down in a comfy chair to eat my lunch, and found the view out the window rather attractive:
A most successful outing!
The cherry trees in the quad were in bloom, but it was raining. So I hope to get back there later this week when there is sunshine (and warmer temperatures) in the forecast.
