Yes, I’m such a tourist 🙂 . I go to Seattle and what do I draw? The Space Needle. Everywhere I look I see the Needle. Sometimes I find myself below it looking up, but at other times I’m drawing the view before me and there it is, looming on the horizon. So here are the Space Needles…
Drawing the construction cranes on 6th Avenue, and there it is, dwarfed by the cranes.
There is no way I was going to stand an hour in a line to go look at the view out of the Needle, so my kids got to go up there, and I sketched. Next time I have to remember NOT to be looking straight up into the sun while sketching!
One last view of the skyline and the Needle, from aboard our ship as we set sail for Alaska.What a fascinating structure it must have been when it was built in 1962! I’m glad I got to see it at it’s 50th year anniversary. I love the gold-orange color it is right now.
