Spring might finally be here. It was bright, sunny and 60 degrees. It was definitely a day to sketch outdoors!
While driving along Airport Way to the sketch outing yesterday, I drove past both of these locations and made a plan to return. When I realized how nice it would be today, I decided to drive back to sketch them.
The Old Rainier Brewery has been a Seattle icon. When it was the Rainier Brewery, it had a red neon “R” on top. That has been moved to the Museum of Science and Industry. The brewery closed in 1999. Since then it has been sold a couple times and has been converted to house other businesses. Tully’s Coffee has their headquarters and roasting site there. So now there is a “T” on top. The Urban Sketchers Seattle had a sketch outing there late last year but I missed it.
The next place is the City of Seattle Traffic Shops. I liked the yellow awning and the Chief Seattle graphic/logo. I added a bit of “collage”. Can you tell where? See below to get the answer.
The flag is at half mast all over the State in honor of past governor, Booth Gardner. He died last week after a long battle with Parkinson’s. He spearheaded the campaign for physician assisted death with a law similar to Oregon’s.
(answer: I used my photo of the logo rather than painting it.)
