Sketching in the rain
I'm getting really good at holding my umbrella, my art supplies and my iPhone all at the same time. Sketching out in the open can certainly become quite the circus attraction, but I don't mind it. Most people are too busy to stop by and check what I'm doing, and, if they do, they're always curious and complimentary.
Taking photos while I sketch is a way to document the process and I also like to post them on Twitter.
For this view of one of the longest stairways in the city I blocked out the composition in pencil first to get the perspective right. See the result of this wet sketch outing over at my Seattle Times blog.
