Little sketch in big city of Bellevue

We do a lot of pretend shopping in my family. We go into a store but just look. We hardly ever buy anything, not impulsively at least.
The impulse to draw, on the contrary, is harder for me to overcome. After browsing in a store in downtown Bellevue Monday afternoon, I made my family wait 10 minutes while I did this sketch — color added later at home. The fact that I don’t come to Bellevue often made the impulse even more irresistible — if you are a sketcher, I’m sure you can relate to this feeling.
Bellevue always strikes me as bigger than I think it is. While visiting a couple of years ago, my father-in-law actually thought he was already in Seattle the first time he drove past it on I-405.
A while back I also did a sketch at Crossroads shopping mall, where I really enjoyed seeing all the public art around the premises.
That time we actually bought something. Lunch.
