Similar to the Gingerbread village, the model train village at Seattle Center’s Winterfest is a sketching nemesis. I’ve never done a sketch of either that I’ve liked. So today I mostly practiced avoidance.
I was there so early, though, that I felt I really should sketch something while I sat at a table awaiting the arrival of other sketchers. So I did a small sketch of the “King Street Station” clock tower the the model train engineer.
Still wanting to sketch in the holiday theme, I next turned to this tree decoration.
I wandered up to the “Armory Loft” to see the view of the scene from above. This amused me: the Armory logo with it’s own ribbon hanger made it look like it belonged with the holiday wreaths.
We had a large group today with some visitors. Anya is down from Alaska again!
And Juliana is from Brazil! She’s visiting for a month so hopefully we will see her and friend, Aaron, more.
The throw down. Stephanie’s back from India! And Eli brought his whole family… mom, dad and sister all sketched.
