Urban Sketchers Seattle met at Beacon Hill Light Rail Station this morning for the monthly outing. A good size group showed up to sketch station highlights and the surrounding area. We had many newcomers and a couple of sketchers from Tacoma Urban Sketchers. Welcome to all including returning sketchers! I passed out an Urban Sketcher handout about posting on-line, so I look forward to seeing abundant on-line posts from this morning.
I pivoted northeast and sketched a scene of old and new buildings with old and new growth trees. A vintage house enthusiast, I love to draw their intricate features. This drawing included a “Seattle Box” roofline and a new high-rise complex to the west. The Beacon Hill neighborhood next to the station is full of charming cottage style homes. I noted at least one razed lot with a bulldozer waiting to finish its job. Out with the old, in with the new, a continuing mantra in Seattle. Behind the line of houses I could see the blue silhouette of the Cascade Mountain Range. At least the landscape stays the same.
