Recently with the success of my Pittsburgh Skylines, I was inspired to start branching out and creating new city skylines to cater to both Seattle Natives to tourist who love the land. My boyfriend is currently stationed in the Navy just outside of Seattle which has given me the excuse to visit Seattle a couple times now and I must say I do love the city. Of course I did the touristy things of visiting Pike's Market, the famous gum wall and the Space Needle, but my second trip out there I finally got to explore the frontiers of the gorgeous environment that surrounds the city. On my second trip I got to travel through Olympic National Park and drive up to Mt. Rainier, a 14,410 foot volcano just hanging out next to city no big deal. When I decided to create the Seattle skyline I really wanted to incorporate breath taking Mt. Rainier with it. I feel everyone is very hyped about Mt. St. Helens but don't actually know about the other volcano always in sight of the city. Although black and gold are Pittsburgh's colors, I love the sleek clean look in the style I've created so I decided to stick to that color scheme for my first Seattle painting. Loving the way it turned out and future cities are to come!
