complete sketchbook, 4 San Antonio panoramas

    Newer Older

    view it full size . It's actually four separate panos end to end in one large Japanese Album Moleskine, all of which I drew on site in downtown San Antonio. The first is a 180 degree sketch of Houston Street just north of Alamo Plaza. The second 180 degree pano is of Navarro Street and the Nix Hospital. The third is on Commerce Street and features the Aztec Theater. The fourth pano is only 90 degrees (I ran out of room) and was done in front of the old San Antonio Courthouse. They are all stitched together by means of a transitional device I borrowed from Urban Sketcher Pete Scully-- a light pole or street sign is used as a divider between panoramas, and fortunately I was able to use what was already there.

    Elias Gardner, z.Wax, kumi matsukawa, and 58 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Wow, thanks everyone! Tulipe, because I did this on my days off it took about 3 months to get the whole thing finished. Gerard and gardenque, the whole piece is 4 separate panoramas back to back in one Japanese style folding Moleskine. The first three panos are 180 degrees and the last one is only 90 degrees because I ran out of space. Gerard, I would love to do some 360 degree drawings soon-- it's hard to find a place to do one without drawing in the middle of the street!

      And rufusdos, thanks for noticing the "street within a street." That particular corner had historic photographs of San Antonio pasted onto the wall of an abandoned building.

      Truly amazing, well done. This should be in a gallery - a very important gallery at that, it is a true work of art.

      Ben-Curtis is right.
      Stunning Paul, you really are an artist.
      A title that I do not use off-hand as it is profound, this thing we call art.
      I'm so interested in seeing San Antonio now, I love the older architecture. It seems the anamoly metropolis in Texas because in my imagination the cities there are all so new and shiny.

      This is extraordinary - this MUST be in an exhibition! Did you use a "rapidograph" to draw this?

      Thanks for sharing
