It was great to join the other Seattle Sketchers who braved the gray, rain AND the time change yesterday.
Of course, I was drawn to sketch the view in the reading room, looking UP (getting into the mindset to teach "Soaring Spaces" in Manchester this summer.) What a beautiful space and probably the closest thing we have to England in Seattle.
This sketch took about 1 hour 15 minutes, was done with a .5 mechanical pencil on an 8" x 16" Fluid watercolor block with Winsor & Newton watercolors. I'll post the entire process on my blog later today. If you click on this image, you should be able to see the detail.
And I have to add that I'm the proud mom of two current UW students! Go Dawgs!!
