While in Spokane yesterday, I had a really brief window to do a bit of sketching of downtown Spokane. The one on top I did while sitting on a concrete flower box, freezing my tush. I think it would have been a good idea to stay with the Pigma Microns for the trees, but hey, what the heck, right? It wasn't difficult to splash paint on this one because it's a very rough sketch, still I worried about ruining it. Ha..
This one was done from inside the food mart at the River Park Square Mall, looking down on Main and Post Streets. The sun was shining so the shadows could have played a part in all this, but I decided to take the sky and blast it with some dark paint. It isn't easy just flopping paint after spending what feels like a considerable amount of time getting the drawing down, so it's a real adventure when you do splash the paint like this.
