King Street Station

A group of Seattle Urban Sketchers met to sketch the newly renovated King Street Station.  It was stunningly beautiful and quite a sketching challenge.  The set of photos of this sketch outing is here.

Before meeting up with the group, I stopped at Union Station.  I got the sketch mostly done before it was time to leave.  I colored it at home.  I put into practice some things from the Mt. Vernon “Line to Color” workshop.  I left some white space and I put in some foreground interest.

My first sketch at King St. Station was a larger view.  The perspective was quite a challenge.

I did two more detail sketches.  The first is one of the chandeliers as seen from above on the 2nd floor balcony.

The next is a detail of wall and lighting.

As usual, we met to share our sketches.
