Divisadero Sketch



Acrylic on Cardstock

Saw this scene on my way home yesterday. Snapped it on the iPhone and couldn't wait to sketch it. At last, no fish.

I do like the subject and the general composition, so I think I'll spend a little time working this into something bigger.

Hi Gringo, I agree, you should make a "larger" (whatever THAT means) painting of this sketch. For me "larger" is MUCH easier than smaller. Keep on keeping on! You do good stuff! :-)

Interesting that on a busy street, you're attracted to the buildings that are boarded up or closed during the day. I wonder if including a bit of the activity of the auto shop or, what's next nearer, the meat market? might contrast with the loss and the expectation of your 2 buildings. That might also emphasize how big and white and sad the abandoned church looks.

In any case, as always, looking forward to seeing your next piece.
