On a hot day, I made a detour after errands to swing through Pike Place Market and got totally sucked into the very charming Post Alley.
I sat across from one of the entrances by the market to do a quick sketch capturing the strong summer shadows. I liked the intersection of the produce vendor stalls with the multi-level cafe seating.
Then I walked up through the alley and found a spot in a public seating area with a nice view of the sign! The colors in this sketch were inspired by the outfit of a lady I saw walking through nearby - the combo of cerulean/purple/yellow was quite striking.
