En plein air

This is an architectural drawing done en plein air while sitting outside a coffee shop over the course of two afternoons. It was interesting how the light was similar yet different over those two sittings, and it became clear to me that river town buildings have a sort of animated quality to them. All freehand since I enjoy the expressive layered lines and cross-hatching.

Lessons learned: Perfection is overrated, keeping the same perspective is key, and it's fun to make art outdoors with friends.
