Weekly Theme: Oct. 30 - Nov. 5: Architectural Detail (Suggested by Marcia Milner-Brage)

sketchySteven says:

Ooooh, this is going to be fun. Weekly Theme #104 is a fun micro look at the world of architecture. We're going to look at architectural detail. So buildings features that might not ordinarily get sketched -- doorways, gargoyles, gables, etc. Anything that's intimately associated with architecture but that isn't the WHOLE structure / setting / view.

Thanks to Marcia for the topic.

Here's are some sketches for inspiration:

Greene & Greene house by jcrowtherart


Many people don't realize that like Pasadena, Santa Monica has many architectural gems. This is a Greene Brothers Arts and Crafts bungalow sitting high on a bluff overlooking Santa Monica Canyon with a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. Many years ago the owners, friends of mine, asked me to lend them my Jack Russell Terrier, Killer, to rid the crawl space under the house of rats. He came up empty handed.

It's said that Frank Lloyd Wright, upon seeing a Greene Brothers house in San Francisco, grumbled that they had stolen their trademark style from his midwestern Prairie Houses. He brushed off the observation that they had been working well before his first Prairie-style house was built.
