At the Gates Foundation Visitor Center

Took my Cornish drawing class last Friday to sketch at the Gates Foundation Visitor Center, then stayed later to sketch.  I had the wonderful opportunity to work on this project for over a year with Olson Kundig Architects, the project turned out so beautifully.  It's a great place to sketch and the VC staff is very welcoming.

I painted using a simple triad of Nickel Azo, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, and Cobalt Blue.  It's amazing how many colors you can mix with just a simple 3 paints. I wish I had adjusted the perspective more to get a better sense of the wide angle, but I was tired and hungry!
