Suzzallo Library

Suzzallo Library can be overwhelming.  I have sketched there with students  many times.  This time I wanted to focus on  light and value.  I started in the vestibule outside the main reading room.  That area is filled with such dramatic light. I was sketching looking toward the windows.   It was as if headlights were shining into my eyes,  I had to squint it was so bright.  The second sketch I did...I only completed the inkline on site and took a picture of the detail to later add watercolor.  If you want to see my process of building up that watercolor look on my flickr site.  I have the 4 stages, from inkline to finish.
