I first started this sketch on Opera Alley and then it hailed on me. I took a picture to record the colors of the buildings so I could paint it later. Yes these are the real colors of the buildings and just as bright as my sketch suggests. I painted it from the photo. Luckily I had it drawn before the hail came down and was using micron pens. Instant waterproof ink!
In the comfort of Tully's I sketched the view through the windows of the store with Tina and Frank in the mid ground sketching.
