A Fremont Alley

I found a shady spot to draw this alley in Fremont during the monthly meeting of the Seattle Urban Sketchers.

Notice the many lines that mark the false starts as I struggled to get the proportions and relative sizes of the building forms to fit within my desired view. The key for me is to ignore these stray marks as I continue to develop the drawing and add values and line weights to create the sense of spatial depth on the page.

  1. Thank you for leaving in those "false start" marks, Frank. I always have difficulty believing that people like you ever have false starts, ;-) So it's encouraging to know that no matter what the level of experience, we all still have to search for the right lines. (I guess the difference is that you always eventually find the right lines! :-) )
