For the Foyer, I squinted to imagine what might be seen in a small sketch.
I went in with grisaille in Lexington Grey to suggest the tones; later I painted the color of the marble with Super5 Frankfurt warm grey ink, as much of the marble was grey.
Did the same with brunaille in waterproof brown ink.
I tried to keep the “suggestion of” rather than doing detail, because I can get caught in detail as if it is a technical drawing — not what I want in a sketch.

I started a Facebook group page (you must join to view) to allow everyone to share their virtual sketches, and also where we will, from time to time, take virtual sketch walks together. Come join us On Facebook if you are inclined!
If you want to know more about what a virtual sketchwalk is review my first post.
