We tried something new today. We sketched at two different locations. I hosted the section at the Tukwila light rail station. Only four others came and three of them left early, so no group picture.
This week is the 100 people in a week sketching challenge so the idea was to sketch people at the station. I'm not participating so I sketched one of the sculptures. This is "A Drop of Sustenance" by Tad Savinar. It is a suspended sculpture illustrating living water, the element that provides sustenance for all creatures that pass through the region. Until I looked it up, I thought it represented milk, as it is very white!
Then, because the weekly theme in the Urban Sketchers Flickr group is utility poles and lines, I sketched the electric wires for the trains. I stood at the very furthest end of the platform to capture this view. As the trains arrived, the driver's cab was right next to me. I smiled and waved, which they did in return. I made it a quick sketch as it was cold and windy in that spot.
