Kennewick Grain Elevator Tagged

Clearwater Avenue Grain Elevator, across and a bit from the Flashcube building.  The top drawing was sketched with a micron pen then a sepia coloured brush pen and a blue/gray graphite water soluble pencil.

I used a mechanical pencil to sketch the lower picture.  I brushed art bars around for the spring sky, rusted pipes and aged plywood.

The owners had to stop Jim, Patty G and Dave from tagging urban sketchers on the "garage door", not really, but the aged plywood had that look!

  1. You too have captured the heaviness of the structure in both your sketches. I think I like the one on the left (did you notice I rearranged your post?) due to the shadowing and the perspectives in that area where the three structures all meet. I like that graffittii in the other one too. Maybe we should get some spray paint and go out some evening to do our "art." ...:-)
