Thursday I drove to Tacoma because there's a big fiber festival going on, so I thought I would use that excuse to try sketching some of Tacoma's old buildings. Even though it was a misty, dull gray day, I managed to park close enough to Union Station to be duly impressed with the beauty of that dome!

In this empty lot sketch, I was drawn in by the wonderful shadows dancing on the brick wall. With all the plain gray days we've been having (and thus no strong shadows!) it was such a pleasure to play with shadows.
This other sketch looks like it was done after someone cleared all the cars off the street! - NOT! Like Tina, I seem to have great difficulty with cars. Maybe I need to give my self a challenge of sketching 30 days worth of cars!!
