The organizer(s) for the first Saturday outings for Urban Sketchers Tacoma did a lot of work to arrange for us to have exclusive entry to the Pantages Theater for today’s sketch outing.
The interior was wonderful, if a bit dark. I was wishing I’d brought my book light. So I positioned myself under a chandelier in the theater in order to do my first sketch. The overhanging balcony was a popular subject today as I was just one of many sketchers who drew it. In this balcony were 4 sketchers, all drawing the balcony on the other side of the theater.
There was a bit of time left so I next sketched this small ornamental detail in the lobby, with a bit of the stained glass skylight on the upper edge.
We were a large group today so it was a long line of sketches at the “throw down”.
