Urban Sketching : Venice Piazza in McKinley Hill

This was actually done two weeks ago, when Aissa and I sought shelter from the heat in the Venice Piazza at Mckinley Hill.  We had a schedule brownout from 8:00am to 2:pm, so we had lunch at Pho Hoa and coffee at the Dunkin Donuts cafe.  I picked the cafe specifically because it gave me a good view of the statues on the facade of the main entrace to McKinley Hill, which looked pretty from afar.  Upon close inspection the statues were unimpressive, though that didn’t stop me from sketching them.

  1. i guess it really depends on the artist what his depiction is going to look like no matter how close the sketch is to the subject. unimpressive subject can still make for an impressive sketch. what do you use for the shadows?

  2. I use a gray marker brush that I bought in Japan at a 100 yen store.

  3. i have not been to any art store for the past few decades. do they have one of those or similar to what you have here in Manila?
