This past weekend, I decided to head down to Georgetown and take some time to sketch the neighborhood's historic brick buildings. As I drove down I-5 towards the Albro exit, I rounded a corner and saw Mount Rainier rising in the distance.
I knew at once I had to take this opportunity to sketch Seattle's famous mountain. I parked by Fantagraphics Books and walked over to Rudy Chow park at the end of Boeing field. The wide sweep of the airstrip beyond the park provided the perfect viewscape for the mountain.
After finishing my watercolor, I walked back into Georgetown and took a moment to sketch the historic City Hall turned dental clinic. The impressive brick building has been refurbished to serve as a dental office and beautify the neighborhood. I particularly liked the building's well maintained landscaping.
