Spiral Staircase

Out on another sketching adventure downtown with intrepid sketching partner Miz Dee. We started rather late in the afternoon to allow the downtown traffic to clear out.

It had been a warm sunny day, but our spot in the parking lot was in the shade. The temperature dropped rapidly with the waning sunlight. The wind was whipping between the buildings. It wasn't the most ideal sketching situation. Adding to the discomfort, we had forgotten to bring folding chairs. We opted to huddle in the car and draw through the open windows.

Our original sketch target was a beautiful Gothic church, but when we got set up I spied the Urban Grunge and spiral staircase in the neighboring back alley. The church was all but forgotten.

I think I like this better than a church too. I love that spiral staircase!
