Sketchcrawl at the University of Washington campus

Saturday was the 21st World Wide Sketchcrawl. We had a great turnout in Seattle. It was cloudy and rainy at times but not too cold. The location where we drew this time was the University of Washington campus, which offers a great mix of architecture: a lot of gothic style halls and some stark, more functional-looking buildings. I drew both of my sketches from what is known as the "red square," because of the redish color of the pavement I suppose. On some rare very clear days you can see Mount Rainier from here.
Check out what the rest of our group drew on the Seattle thread of the sketchcrawl forums.
Just like during last sketchcrawl at Pike Place Market, here's a photo of the group. We met at café Solstice after sketchcrawling around the campus. I'm the guy in the yellow raincoat in case you are curious.
