The last of the sketching adventure sketches. Miz Dee was packing up her stuff just as I started this one, so this is a whip-n-slop kinda sketch.
I usually draw all the little ticky architectural details on buildings because that's what draws my eye to a building in the first place. Instead of drawing each brick in the soldier course here, I just wiggled the pen a little bit. Under that were intricate arches in the brickwork. They ended up being humpy gray blobs. Below that was a dentil detail. Looks like a doctor's signature instead.
Slopped on some paint with a wide waterbrush and called it done.
It looks like a stucco building somewhere in west Texas instead of a historic red brick building in Lower Arkansas.
Oh well. Such is life for the Urban Sketcher.
