Last week I was invited to teach a class of University of Washington students from the Architecture school. We met at Post Alley and did quick sketches around Pike Place Market.
Sketching is usually a solitary activity, so it was especially energizing to draw around the market with nearly 20 sketchers eager to learn.
I took the opportunity to experiment with my new Sailor fountain pen.
