Suzzallo Library



1/20/13 Platinum Sepia ink, watercolor
Heading out for the University of Washington’s Suzzallo Library to meet the Seattle Urban Sketchers, I grabbed my 8 ½” x 11” sketchbook, twice as big as my usual format, because I figured the library’s grand Gothic architecture demanded a larger page. I was glad I did. I needed the space to allow this spectacular window to more fully kick my butt.

After that, I was so exhausted that I needed a nap. Instead, I retreated to the library’s cafĂ© and got a cup of coffee so that I could sketch in my comfort zone.

  1. You are right about it needing a larger page! Nicely done!!! It looks like it was quite a challenge.

    1. Thanks, Joan! Suzzallo Library has lots of interior windows like this... a sketcher's paradise (or nightmare! :-0 ).
