A Bit of Architecture

This is the last sketch I did during the Around-the-Town Sketching Workshop I conducted recently in Beaufort, SC.

We were making our way back to Coastal Art Supply and decided to see if anything on Craven Street spoke to us.  This church steeple did it for me.  The sun was out but storm clouds were to the north.  So dramatic!

I've often said sketching with pen is terrifyingly freeing and so it was while I sketched this subject that's not at all nature related.  I kept telling myself to be bold and trust that I'd get the perspective correct.  I'm pleased :)

This is an amazing church. The architect and builders really added some wonderfully unusual details. I must get back and explore this building in more detail.
