Northgate Library


8/11/23 Northgate Branch, Seattle Public Library

While the Green Lake branch is closed for renovation, I’ve been picking up my books at the Northgate library. Unlike Green Lake’s stately, elegant Carnegie building (which I never tire of sketching), Northgate is of the nondescript, modern type that I don’t like to draw. But since I was there, I wanted to acknowledge my appreciation that I still have a library within walking distance.

It’s probably obvious that I became more interested in the weeping cypress in front of it than the building. But it’s actually the juxtaposition of the two that makes this composition interesting to me.
