Curved Glass and Steel

3/28/18 The 14th floor view of South Lake Union
3/28/18 Union Square

I had some time to kill in a 14th floor waiting room with a fantastic view of South Lake Union. When I saw it, I kicked myself for not bringing my landscape-format sketchbook. In the time I had, I could have sketched twice as much of the glass and steel horizon as I did.

One of the more attractive modern buildings in downtown Seattle is Union Square, which has a subtly curved face on one side. I was told that its design was inspired by the prow of a ship. I don’t often sketch portraits of modern high-rises, but with time and that fabulous view, it called to me.

  1. Funny that with all the sketchbooks we have, it is so easy NOT to have that perfect one with us. lolI really like the city view with the crane!!! You did a good job showing the curve of the Union Square building.
