The Station and the Library

As we arrived early, we sought a warm beverage at Anthem Coffee. I decided to try out the new Field Notes Signature sketchbook. This is an ink drawing with Lamy Joy (Platinum Carbon black) and a Pentalic brush pen. It ghosted a little on the back of the paper but didn't bleed through. The ghosting didn't show up in the scan so I haven't posted an image.

It was a cold and blustery morning as Urban Sketchers Tacoma gathered in the shelter of the rotunda of Union Station, which is now a Federal Court House. We spread out all over the building. There were views out the windows and Chuhuly glass sculptures.
Sharing sketches and our group photo, with Chuhuly in the background.

My first sketch was from the main floor, looking up to the walkway with an old clock and the large window with Chuhuly's installation, Monarch Window.


Next, I went down to what would have been "track level" when it was a train station. There I sketched a view of the Bridge of Glass that leads over to the Museum of Glass.

After lunch together, many of us went to the Tacoma Main Library to see the USk Tacoma show there. Beverly did a wonderful job installing it.

More photos of sketchers and avant-weird ones of the glass:
