Our first regular Wednesday outing

The first regular 3rd Wednesday sketch outing for the Tacoma Urban Sketchers was in Union Station, Tacoma.   It is a beautiful interior, full of graceful architecture and many Dale Chihuly glass pieces.  We had an excellent turn out, as well.  There were 18 sketchers, though some had to leave before the final group photo.

I chose a view from the second floor, looking through an arch to the Chihuly hanging glass over the lobby.

I had a few minutes before our sharing session at 12:30 so I quickly sketched this view through the Chihuly Monarch window.  It only took about 10 minutes.
