Lunch time sketches in Seattle

Coliseum Theater at 5th and Pike

Elliott Bay from the Market


Recently I have gone out at lunch to try and sketch a view of something near my office.
The one hour lunch is a challenge to eat and create an image within the time limits.   The exercise of getting to the essense of the composition without getting stuck in the details is good practice in what are you really seeing.   I like it better when the clock is off!

    1. Around downtown there are some good views out of lobbies that you can stay warm and dry while sketching.
