Urban Sunday

meldrum urban sketch

Urban Sketching is just so much fun. This month we visited Lilla Wien which  I have walked past everyday going to work and never once thought, “Oh, I must visit that pub!”.  Every Sunday it seems, elderly jazz fans gather to listen to live music and to dance. They really looked like they were enjoying themselves.

I sat down at the long table that was reserved for us sketchers, I wasn’t facing the band but instead I had a good view of the bar. I am reasonably happy with the watercolour sketch, it would have been nicer if I had fewer hard edges. The bottles behind the bartender should have been out of focus, also the light on his shoulders should have been soft too.

  1. Art wherever you go, I love this watercolor because of the rich darks, contrasting lights and this cinema look like, for me just fantastic.

    1. Thank you setxu!
      … I call you setxu here but on Instagram I am not sure what I should call you. I am guessing that you would prefer that I don’t use your real name?
