Pike Place Market
As others have mentioned, it was almost too cold to draw, even with fingerless gloves on. Interesting to compare everyone's iconic views of the market entrance from 1st Avenue and Pike Street. My wide view causes the large Public Market Center sign to lose the immediacy we normally perceive it to have. I think a more closely cropped view would have worked better. The second sketch is of Post Alley.
