I use pencil to lay out perspective but that thing is, something went wrong.
When a drawing is wrong there is little color will do to fix it… but I persevered.
Damn I am a master at perspective but this is not wonky, it is just wrong!.
I have lots of Mason Monterey and Del Rey Monterey-style in my studio right now.
I took liberties as the desk in red is going to BE Spanish Red,
but now it is an extremely damaged Desert Dust.
I realize that by their rules this doesn’t qualify as an urban sketch…
but is someone else walked in to sketch our conservation studio it sure would!
