On my way to meet the Friday sketchers at 6 Arms, I walked through the Washington State Convention Center. Along with a variety of art exhibited on its walls, the Convention Center offers unusual views that are difficult to get elsewhere in the city, such as this one of (I think) Union Street. On a gray, drizzly morning, one small maple was on fire on an upper-level plaza across the street, while other trees on the street level were still as green as ever.
Kate found me sketching Union Street, and after I finished, I caught up with her on an upper floor, where I found another unique view. Traffic on Interstate 5 is somewhat fictionalized in my sketch – it would have to have been about 2 a.m. for this few cars to be in view.
After we both finished our sketches from the Convention Center, we walked up the hill to 6 Arms.. .
