Wyland mural


I sketched the Wyland mural on the South side of the La Quinta Hotel near Denny Way last November. And yesterday I finally sketched the one on the opposite side of the building. I like both very much but this one with the orca jumping out of the water is even more impressive. Behind the hotel they're building towers of condos and shops that will probably dwarf this building and these wonderful depictions of marine life by artist Robert Wyland.
El pasado noviembre hice un dibujo del mural de Wyland en la fachada sur del hotel La Quinta en Denny Way. Y ayer por fin dibujé el que está en el otro lado del edificio. Me gustan los dos, pero éste con la orca saliendo del agua es aún más impresionante. Detrás del hotel están construyendo torres de apartamentos y tiendas. A su lado, este edificio y los magníficos murales marinos de Robert Wyland se quedaran pequeños.
