I sat in the upper lobby but didn't have any of the staff try & move me or my stool. Maybe I was out of their sight lines?? My first sketch I looked almost straight up into the confluence of the different ceiling forms and spaces. The yellow lighting coming from the windows and hanging fixtures gave everything a warm glow, but also made it difficult to differentiate between objects in my sketch.
As I was waiting on colors to dry I started on a lower view of the plywood structure and the yellow light fixtures. I introduced green into the sketch to differentiate the steel girders holding up the plywood forms.
I loved having a big rail wall next to me to place my wet sketch books. I like working between multiple views so that could spend the whole time drawing and painting. I get impatient waiting for the paint to dry.
In the end I had to draw Lynn because she was so patiently holding her pose sketching away in my foreground. In the second view I ran out of paper at the bottom to include her... poor planning on my part. Great day to sketch indoors and wonderful to see another large group of sketchers.
David, I particularly love your tall/long sketch--the scale is amazing, just right to capture a sense of the architecture (beams, bolts, etc.) and also a sense for the crazy layering. And the color palette is even more beautiful in person.ReplyDelete
Great colors and I love the way you saw the structure. BTW I stole one for our facebook banner. I hope it's ok.ReplyDelete
