Belvedere Apartments

First sketch of the year on a still chilly March afternoon. This is not a great photo of the sketch. Belvedere Apartments on 8th Avenue and Garfield Place. Ink and watercolor sketch on location.


  1. I love the contrast between the delicacy of the fence in the foreground and those almost-monumental columns with such presence!


  2. Stumbled onto your Etsy your sketching style! I just had to check out your blog too.

    Your architectural subjects are so detailed and interesting to look much movement...and it is so free and loose. Well done. It's been a good month or more since i've sketcked anything....but looking at your lines is so inspiring!
    Thanks....greetings from Canada.

    Ciao Bello!
