Sunday Sketching in the COLD

Near freezing temps, but a motivated group of Seattle Sketchers showed up on Sunday at the Pioneer Square underground bus tunnel!  This is part of what is so great about USk, the group motivation and support to venture out on a Sunday morning, even in the COLD, to see our world one sketch at a time.

First was the bus was very hard to get the curves right, took longer than expected.

Second, with frozen hands, I needed to feel some sun, so it was up to the sunny corner at 3rd Ave. and Yesler.

After, I headed over to Zeitgeist cafe and sketched the entire interior.  I have been trying a limited color palette over pencil drawings in my work sketches lately, and I suppose this is a variation on that idea, with just ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, yellow ochre, and a touch of manganese blue in the glass. I was tired, so the perspective got a little wonky in places! I also probably need to draw into the gutter a bit more, maybe try pen...always learning...

  1. These are all such great sketches. I especially love the middle one where the perspective is so wonderful. I have such a difficult time scaling things down.

    By the way, what should be in my inbox when I got home, but an email from Craftsy!
