|8/21/12 Copic Multiliner SP pen, watercolors, Stillman & Birn sketchbook|
Forza Coffee at Green Lake has a small patio that faces a side street, offering a perfect view of Spud’s Fish & Chips. I thought it would make another good perspective study, but then I got confused by the rooftop sloping away from me. It was probably one of those illustrations in drawing books in which the converging lines disappear somewhere off the page. I decided to stop “studying” and simply enjoy sketching in the chilly breeze. (OK, what I really, really need to study is automotive sketching.) Here’s the sketch I did of the same scene with brush markers a few months ago on another chilly, breezy day.
