December's meeting of the Seattle Sketchers was held at the King Street Station. I arrived early, found a great parking spot (it was Sunday morning, after all!!) and decided to sketch the station from my car.
Yesterday, I joined an ad-hoc group of sketchers at the Seattle Center House, where the Winter Festival was happening. One of the larger displays was a model railroad with a station and a little village, complete with a hot air balloon that magically took off and floated above the village. Of course, the "station" was modeled after our own Amtrak King Street Station! I felt compelled to sketch the model, the clock tower now becoming a well-known identifier.
