First Urban Sketch

There’s this whole phenomenon called “Urban Sketching.” I mostly see outdoor scenes, but it can be most anything sketched/painted live that is city rather than country. The boundaries are pretty inclusive.

Was at the City Perk coffee shop near here today, and was struck by the bright colors of a building across the parking lot, so I got out the new Koi travel kit, and my Daniel Smith travel brushes, and…painted. This was the result. On cold press in a Caslon notebook.

I gave the painting to the woman making the coffee; seemed to make her pretty happy. 🙂
