|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.
