Plein-air pen and wash on paper

Macdonald’s Lookout.


The Macdonald restaurant on the south end has a seat in front of a window where I can see some houses across the street. Once in a while, the sun came out producing shadows that I marked up with my pen and used some watercolour wash at home to fill in.

The tones from local objects are missing, but there is always next time.

  1. Shadows often make a sketch. I often move the sun to make a sketch more interesting.

  2. I love the sepia look, of late most of what I do is monochrome
