South Lake Union


I sketched this view looking down at Terry Avenue with Lake Union in the distance from the roofless top level of a parking garage near the newspaper building where I work. The same spot from where I drew the Space Needle the other day, but looking north instead. It's a great sketching spot — there's even a round metallic table with an attached bench where I can sit. The entire South Lake Union neighborhood is undergoing a lot of transformation, with construction of office buildings and the opening of a new trolley that is supposed to alleviate traffic congestion in the area. It started raining as soon as I finished the sketch so I knew it was time to get back to work.


Este sketch en que se ve Terry Avenue y Lake Union al fondo lo hice desde la última planta, que está al aire libre, de un parking cercano al periódico. El mismo desde donde hice este dibujo del Space Needle el otro día, pero en este caso mirando al norte. Es un lugar perfecto para dibujar. Incluso hay una mesa metálica con un banco donde me puedo sentar. El barrio de South Lake Union está en plena transformación, con edificios de oficinas en construcción y la inauguración dentro de poco de un tranvía para aliviar la congestión de tráfico en esta zona. Se puso a llover justo cuando terminé el dibujo y era hora de volver al trabajo.
