Even without going up into the exhibits, the downtown Seattle Art Museum is full of interesting interior spaces and artworks, and the Seattle Urban Sketchers made a huge turnout for a sketchcrawl there.
Looking down over the café entrance and the children’s play area, I started out by sketching a fellow sketcher (who turned out to be Carleen, I figured out later) seated in the stairwell. (If you check out her Flickr photostream, you’ll see the sketches she was sketching while I sketched her.)
Eventually I got up the courage to attempt a somewhat abstract sketch of the cars hanging from the main lobby ceiling (Inopportune: Stage One, a sculpture by Cai Guo-Qiang). After all, how often do you get a convenient opportunity to sketch the underbellies of a bunch of cars?
