Church on Jefferson

After today's jury committee meeting,  I scouted for a place to sketch.  I've noticed this church before,  and it was the first place to draw me in.  I'm using my journal with the handmade khadi paper in it,  and making my marks with my favorite fountain pen.  Once this lines are dry (ish), I take the water brushpen lightly over those marks to get my mid values. The ink moves readily when water is applied,  often with a making of it's own.  I left out the very modern looking ramp, and I did it without thought.  There is so much editing that happens automatically in my brain before my hand even starts moving!  Painting number 1590 in 1590 days :)
