    Love the balance of form and shadow in this sketch, it jumps off the page and gives a great impression of the subject. A joy to behold!

  • Linda Daily 4y

    This is so lovely!
    May I ask what paper you use?
    It takes the washes beautifully but also the delicate fine ink line.
    I love all your Brooklyn drawings.

  • James Anzalone 4y

    Thank you all for enjoying this one! As Rick said, this style of entry is very typical of this brownstone neighborhood.

    Lillinder322, the paper is 9x12 Strathmore 400 series watercolor paper. My scanner was unavailable so I photographed the sketch outdoors, which highlighted the paper's texture.
