Sketching First Hill

This is my first time out with USk Seattle in about a month due to travel following by a nasty cold. It was good to be out with the group again!

Since I was at the Convention Center quite early, I had time to see the Northwest Watercolor Society's Signature member show. It was really good.

We had a goodly group today:

Since I was there early, I managed three sketches. The first was table and chair at our meeting spot, as I sat waiting.  The Farmers Market was also happening.  

Then I followed other sketchers down the hill a bit to see Town Hall. It is newly renovated but we didn't get inside. In fact, from another view, they appear to still be working on it. At one point, there were four of us sketching a similar scene! 

During the walk back from Town Hall, I could see the top of this odd looking building, apparently a church. I discovered it was one of the buildings of the Seattle First Presbyterian church. It had a banner in front reading "Compass Housing Alliance at First Presbyterian". I was somewhat familiar with Compass as a Social Service Agency. From what I could find on-line, this is a 24/7 homeless shelter now..
