I walked my bike barely 100 yards, and almost immediately, I got hooked again. This time it was the brilliant orange California poppies! By stepping back a bit, I was able to include the bar 9 Million in Unmarked Bills in my sketch. Interesting building that fits into the triangle formed by Fremont Pl. N and N 35th St.
I do love pencil sketching, so in this sketch, I started with 2 Derwent Inktense pencils, followed by ink highlights with Platinum Carbon ink.
I was able to add some w/c later at home.
After we had gathered to show our work, I went over to Peet's, sat outside with my latte, and sketched the McKenzie Building, which now houses Dusty Strings. I've never been in there, but I have 2 friends who have worked there. Can you believe it was hot?! too hot to stay and try to add color, so I packed up and biked UP Stone Way to home. WHAT A GREAT DAY!!!
