Sketching Crowell Hall at Moody

This is the finished product. It was fun to be in Chicago on the campus of Moody Bible Institute for the day. I had to sneak outside and make a sketch of the front of Crowell Hall. I love the look at that entrance.
See my drawing process below.




I always start with a pencil sketch. I try to work as quickly as I can - getting as much detail as I can. It was cold in Chicago this day so I worked extra fast.

Then I start to darken the sketch with my gel pen - inside the warm building!
I was able to finish the pen work on my flight from Chicago to Anaheim today. Thankfully, it was a smooth flight. Drawing made my four hour flight speed by.
Do you have a thing that you do where you lose track of time? It's good that you find that "place" - the "zone". I also call it "unstringing the bow".
