Recently I was in Seattle on business and managed to sneak away to do a few sketches. The new Olympic Sculpture Park is beautifully situated above the water and brilliantly designed. It features stunning views in multiple directions and plenty of expansive space in which to set off the works from striking angles.
There was a sign saying that the Oldenburg was not to be photographed, but it didn’t say anything about sketching. Some teenagers were admiring the sculpture but had no idea what it was supposed to be: I explained, but I don’t think they believed me!
The Pike Place Public Market is another interesting site full of sketching possibilities. It is a bustling place, filled with stands overloaded with prime specimens of every imaginable kind of food. Just looking at those vegetables will make you healthy! Sadly, I only had time to sketch it from afar, looking down Pike Street.
