We’re lucky to enjoy all sort of cool street murals and public artwork in the greater Seattle area. But how much do you know about each of these masterpieces?
In an effort to increase my knowledge of public art and street artists, I’m giving myself the task to sketch the artwork as soon as I see it. Call it “artspotting” via quick line-only sketches.
To start this occasional series, here’s a mural on Capitol Hill that was just painted last year. It shows a young woman holding an umbrella and extending her hand to feel the rainfall. She is looking up, seemingly unaware of a beehive opening up next to her.
Pretty awesome, right? The fantastic scene was painted by artist Derek Wu in collaboration with students from the Northwest School. It can be found at Plymouth Pillars Park on Capitol Hill.
If you sketch it, send me your drawing and I’ll share it on my Facebook page.
