Silence in the library

Urban Sketchers Tacoma met at the UW Tacoma library yesterday.  It was such a sunny day, though still a bit chilly, that some chose to sketch outside.

It was so nice that we displayed our sketches and took our group photo outside at the end of the outing.


Thanks to Scott for taking the photo.

I really wanted to sketch the interior machinery in the silent section of the library.  This is the view that defeated me.

So I moved on to wander across the sky bridge to the Tioga building, where I found this odd sculpture in the window.

I next joined several sketchers in the Chihuly Room, which was another “silent” room.  Most of us there were sketching the Chinook Red Chandelier.

Some people might recognize the title of this post as that of a Dr. Who episode.
