Ella Street Inked

I've always found street scenes challenging.  Now, I don't know why.  It is all angles and relationships, just like everything else, I simply need to draw the shapes and lines.  This drawing came together quickly as a pre sketch for a nocturne painting.  I love this scene, but as the light faded from the sky and the street lights came on, I chose another scene.  This is one of the real benefits of drawing out a composition before painting.  I can work out the details in my mind, and then decide to take it further or not.  I realized I liked the current light, and it would not be the same in the dark.  I'm sure I'll return to this place with my oils one day soon!  Painting number 1630 in 1630 days.
