|The Atomic Salon - East Providence|
I was determined to get out for an hour or so today to do some sketching. I have just finished the sketchbook in the post below and while it was drying I figured I would drive into Providence to sketch. I needed to stop at the bank for some cash and as I drove past his place on Taunton Avenue it just struck me as perfect. Being the lazy dog that I am, after I stopped at the bank the car was still pointed toward Providence, I continued on into the city. It was windy and cold and I could not find a decent place to park (this is an admission of making excuses) so I found a parking lot and did a drawing of the church "Our Lady of the Rosary" from the car (on real watercolor paper in a Moleskin sketchbook) and the sketch turned out awful. Realizing that I should have stopped in East Providence in the first place, I drove back and did the sketch posted above... still not my best work but I found the subject much more satisfying, and I like the fact that the guy was installing flags on the roof.
|thats a BIG car!|
So this is what happens when you just star drawing and not worry about proportion - the towers run off the top and the car is way too stinking big, and quite frankly some of it is just made up. Not my best work.
Atomic Salon is awesome.
