Seattle Pacific University

These are sketches of Seattle Pacific University that I was commissioned to paint this summer.  I spent the week of August 10th at the campus looking for views that were interesting and that would tell some of the history of campus.  At the beginning of the week I went to campus in the mornings and painted into the early afternoon.  Each image took about two hours each; an hour to draw with ink and then an hour to paint with watercolors.  The biggest challenge is the shifting shadows and how to pick a moment to represent the shadows I wanted to pick.

This last one was done last winter for the naming ceremony of the new library addition.
