EDM Challenge #88: Draw Something That Moves in a Breeze

DeKovenHouse.size.jpg USFlag.size.jpg

I have never sketched a flag - and was lucky enough to have one in front of a historically landmarked building in my neighborhood in New York City.  I want to do multiple sketches of this beautiful building that was the home of a light opera composer in the early 1900s.  In the 1930 census that I viewed its value was already estimated at $1,000,000 and it is well maintained and now contains several luxury apartments.  I was able to do the sketch while standing in front of the building and then take a photo of the flag when it was blowing to sketch and paint at home. 


Wonderful drawings!

BEAUTIFULLY DONE!!! GREAT folds on the flag too! Your sketches are really getting glorious, Shirley!

I've somehow missed visiting your blog for a while - you've been doing lovely work - I'm so impressed.

Really like these Shirley. I'm a big fan of architecture so always love drawings of buildings - and you do them so well too! Its a joy to see ...

Lovely flag. And the color of shade looks great.

Lovely, Shirley ... I never tire of seeing Old Glory.
