to spend your days in the sunshine

D St panorama: PANORAMARATHON continues!
This latest installment of the Panoramarathon actually took me a couple of days. Sunday afternoon, while my family went on playdates and baby showers, I went downtown with the sketchbook to keep on drawing buildings with nice shadows on them. However it was taking a bit long, so I finished the left side and came back next day at lunchtime for the right side. This is D Street, and keen observers will see the Pence Gallery on the right, and the building to tis left is one I sketched last eyar when it was still Antiques Plus. Alas it is somethign else now, being the home of Art Is Davis, and artist’s co-op. Always nice to see more art in Davis! On the left again is the Mustard Seed, a local restaurant. Now, if you saw the last post, this scene is directly parallel, on the same block, one street over. If you go through the alleys in this sketch, you end up emerging from the alleys in the last sketch. Moreover, a couple more paralels, the parking sign on the left is similar to in the previosu sketch, and the map-post also parallels the one seen last time (which had a yellow flag). Nice to look for those patterns. I might find more of them.

Belows, closer views of each of the pages. The sunshine continues. Davis is sunny in January, blue skies, leafless trees, excellent views of buildings with nice shadows on them. But we really need the rain.

    Loving these panoramas! Winning details is that tree shadow on the white wall of the gallery, and as an urban sketcher, I’m in love with the street sign renderings as well. Very nice piece; keep ’em coming!
