Phillips 66, Corner of Market and Main

This nostalgic Phillips 66 station at the corner of Market and Main in Weston, Missouri, is a great place to visit.  Like stepping back in time, the whole place is so very authentic.  I had to sketch this, so I chose my favorite TWSBI fountain pen and my favorite ink, Levenger Raven black. Starting in a central location of the building, I work out from there, careful to keep all those line relationships accurate.  As I worked, I was entertained by the conversation of three elderly men on a bench near me.  Time flew and I finished before they did.  They are just another layer of this small town charm I love to capture. Painting number 2443 in 2443 days.
