Friday sketch outing

Five Seattle Urban Sketchers got together today in downtown Seattle to sketch some holiday scenes.
We met first at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel to sketch the Teddy Bear Suite.  Two of us were there early so we both sketched the Santa statue in the lower lobby. 

Sketching the Teddy Bear suite didn't work out so well.  It is not very large and it was full of small children.  We walked through just to see it and then moved on. 

Our next venue was the Gingerbread Village at the Sheraton Hotel.  This was not just a village, it was a series of huge castles!  We settled in comfortable chairs in a part of the lobby looking on to the back of the castles.  I sketched the Beauty and the Beast Castle.

Before we all left, we took the traditional photos of our sketchbooks and the sketchers:

All in all we agreed it was a fun time and that we would arrange another outing on a Friday in January.  Stay tuned on the Seattle USK Google group.  I'll post a message there.
