Getting out hasn't been easy, but I have accomplished a few plein air sketches this past week. This morning, I was downtown in Spokane enjoying a coffee and roll, wondering if this location was going to offer me another coffee shop sketch. Not wanting to be in a rut, I found the old lobby of the building facing outwards towards the street. Here was a dated lobby with a new (ugly) facade - glass double doors set in a plain metal framed surround.
A challenge to draw!
At the bookstore, I found an out-of-print and used copy of Albert Handell's
Pastel Painting Workshop, 1981. Replete with hippy chicks and other awesome Handell illustrations, I couldn't resist buying it.
