My Favorite (local) Church

This is one of my favorite churches and it happens to be just a few doors down from where I live. I went down the street to sketch this church on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and found a tree under which to sit. It cradled my body perfectly as the sun warmed me. The perfect sketching place and time...

The color was added later on my computer. This is a technique I learned from fellow blogger Christina Jonsson - thank you Christina. I have a long way to go to do it as nicely as she does but it was good fun to learn and a technique I'm sure I'll make more use of in my architectural practice.

Wow - I love it. The coloring does work well. I love sketches with bold line work and judicious color application.
