It was great to see so many new people at this month's urban sketch outing. It was definitely a tough sell this weekend with the Seahawks playing Greenbay for a chance to go to the Super Bowl.
It is easy to think you have seen everything at Pike Place Market. Every time I go back though I find something new.
I got in a quick sketch of the Sasquatch sculpture. I had always meant to sketch this market classic but never got the chance.
I also captured this scene of the Pike Brewery grist case sticking out of the walk way to the market's south end. I cheated and added the red to the case afterwards in Photoshop. The grist case was too distinctive to leave out and I did not have a red pen or marker on me at the time.
Finally, I captured this quick view inside of DeLaurenti's wine room, kitchen and seating area. I particularly enjoyed capturing the dense feel of the wine bottles stacked from floor to ceiling in this tiny room.
All in all another great winter time sketch outing to the Pike Place Market. I hope to do it again next year as well. It will be great to start comparing each year against the last.
