USk: Pro Photo Supply, 18th and Marshall, NW Portland

W16 4 23 USK PRO PHOTO 002Had little time to sketchcrawl last weekend, but found a great corner near us in NW.
Around the corner from the main Pro Photo shop on 19th is the new-old building, where they’ve taken a dull green-grey corner at 18th and Marshall and brightened it up.
I used deep colors, with layered dark colors on top and tried a deep shadow.
Not to bad, running colors (I like) and fine for the field.

This entry used to be unnoticeable; the colors all around it have popped it and made the entire entry cheery and inviting.  I thought of this as I am a red door lover!

 Strathmore Journal, with a Pentalic woodless pencil, Platinum Carbon pen,
Noodler’s Lexington Grey ink grisaille (not nearly dark enough), White Uniball Signo pen, and Greenleaf & Blueberry, Daniel Smith, and Holbein watercolors.

    Great doors indeed Kate! I want to go shopping (cause I can’t paint my doors).
