At the Junction

Urban Sketchers Seattle met at the West Seattle Junction.  As seems to be usual, I was there early so I used the time to explore a bit.  I scouted 2 locations for sketches.  I still had some time before meet up at 10, so I sat on a bench and started my first sketch.  I liked the plaza and all the perspective angles of the 4730 California apartment building(s).

I was using my handy perspective tool and a passer by asked me whether I was “orienteering”.

My next scouted location was a cafe table with a view of Easy Street records. I couldn’t quite see the entire corner from my comfortable seat, so I just zoomed in on the section that interested me the most, which was the sign.

There were 3 new people and Anna, a visitor from Las Vegas!  At least one person left early. Anna is kneeling next to me, second from right.

    Great sketches in a neighborhood I’m becoming more familiar with lately. Glad to see you had good weather for the outing! (I take good weather for granted even less now than I used to! )

      Thanks. At first I didn’t think it was that interesting but as I walked around I found some good views. I know… Parka blog has been posting his videos and it’s been raining most days!
