A parking with a view

parkingbuilding121107

I was going to try to sketch from a different location during a quick break from work yesterday, but when I saw that the Olympic Mountains were 'out' behind the Space Needle I decided to go to the top of this parking garage from where I've already sketched a couple of times before —you'll remember this and this also looking West and this other one looking North. Perhaps because of the previous visits there it only took me 20 minutes to do this one, not including adding the goauche washes, which I did later at home.

Iba a intentar dibujar desde otro lugar durante un descanso rápido del trabajo ayer por la tarde, pero cuando vi que se veían las Olympic Mountains detrás del Space Needle decidí plantarme otra vez en este parking desde donde he dibujado varias veces anteriormente —seguramente recordarás este dibujo y este otro mirando hacia el oeste, y otro más mirando hacia el norte. Quizás por las visitas previas sólo tardé 20 minutos en terminar este sketch, sin contar el tiempo de añadir gouache en casa por la noche.

    I like the idea not to paint the cars. It is impressive.

  3. Yes, what Yokuraki said! The uncolored cars work so well. A wonderful drawing as always.

  4. There have been many times I've told myself I should go up to the roof at work to sketch the view. This is truly an urban sketch!

  5. sometimes it works out to leave certain elements without color, ha? I'm glad you agree! and it's a time saver too!

  6. Your work always reminds me that I'd love to go to Seattle. I've read a few books set there, and it sounds like a place I'd like to go.
