Olympic Sculpture Park

Last Thursday I was at Olympic Sculpture Park with my Architecture students. It was a cloudy day with the sun and sky trying to break through the clouds. Here are two versions of the sketch I did.
The first with the foreground lighter. The second with added value to the foreground. I think I like the picture better without the added value it seems more cheery. But too late...its on now. What do you think?


  1. Normally I would say more contrast makes a bigger impact and better mood, but your right, that's not the case here. I do like lighter version more. Either way, a great sketch.

  2. I thought so too. Good thing I have a scan of the first!

  3. the added value adds more drama and depth in my opinion. which one is more true to the way you saw it?

  4. The lighter is more inviting, the darker is more dramatic.
