Prince George Hotel - Finally
After three tries, I finally finished this sketch. My first attempt was interrupted by rain and I had to retreat to a coffee shop. A couple of days later, the road accident happened (see Monday's entry.) Then we had the power failure (see yesterday's entry.) But this morning, before work, I was able to sit on the bench and finish the sketch. All day I looked forward to coming home and putting the colour on it, and tonight I was finally able to do that.
I've got some reservations about the results. I struggled with the colours (how to handle white on beige on cream?) And I would make the whole drawing wider next time--obviously it's too tall and narrow, and let's not even talk about the way the tower sticks out like that. But every time I look at this sketch, I'll remember how eventful this week has been!
