|4/17/23 Green Lake neighborhood
Many new buildings have sprung up around Green Lake in
recent years, and almost all of them are boring boxes. This one, which is among
the older of the newer buildings, is slightly more distinctive than most
because of its rounded corner. In addition, each “cake” layer is a different
warm color from yellow to rust.
Although it was overcast that morning, the clouds were thin enough that one side of the building was illuminated. It’s always an interesting challenge to show the gently bending light on a roundish surface. After losing some of the curving shape when I added water, I went back in with dry colored pencils to modulate the shading a bit more gradually.
