Back to the Market

With another day of excellent weather, I decided to go back into town to Pike Place Market and sketch some more.  The Urban Sketchers weekly theme is Bathrooms (!) and there was an unusual one at the Market I wished I’d sketched yesterday.

I did one quick ink sketch on the bus:

I wandered around the Market area, had a bit of breakfast and took some time deciding what I wanted to sketch.  This is the Market Place North building that is actually on 1st St. but seen from the plaza on Western Avenue, down from Victor Steinbrueck Park.

Finally, here is the sketch of the entrances to the restrooms in the Market and the drinking fountain.  The designs are all done in small tiles.

    The restroom sketches are awesome! I thought of the theme when I saw your photos of these, too.
