Tina organized the Urban Sketchers Seattle to meet at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park, just north of Seattle. Even though we have our regular local sketch crawl tomorrow, we wanted to meet for the Worldwide Sketchcrawl day. All over the world, sketchers are meeting to sketch their cities and locations. Sketches started showing up in the pool yesterday, from those over the dateline!
I got there early to look around and pick out a couple places to sketch. I then had lunch in the large Third Place Commons area, an area with a stage, lots of tables and restaurants just outside Third Place Books, which occupys most of the upper floor of the shopping center.
I first sketched inside Third Place Books. They have both new and used books. I found a couple out of print books for which I’ve been looking. This is a small section called “The Den” which showcases some rare books.
Then I went downstairs to sketch the branch of King County Library. The bank of computers looks out the curved window onto the rest of the shopping center.
After a couple hours of sketching, we met up to share our work. Two had to leave early, so are not pictured here.
It was a good day. Thanks, Tina! Onward to more sketching tomorrow!
