This is the urban sketch that I chose for Virtual Paintout this month. It has the angular lines, and the perspective that I need to practice. It's an easier one than the one I chose last month. I was able to get those windswept palms and dramatic grey skies that appealed to me so much (although the skies do not show up so well in this scan).
The perspective is still not great, but I'm learning a lot each time I try. And traveling vicariously with my Internet boyfriend, also known as Google Pegman, is a real treat. It looks like this time we made it to the literal "end of the road".
