hollyhock house

gouache, 2X3 in.We sketched last weekend on location at Wright's Hollyhock House. Unfortunately there was no real cover with a view to the house - it was quite hot so we took shelter under the pavilion and sketched views across Hollywood Blvd. and toward the gallery building. We could see the crumbling Ennis House on the hill across the blvd. I heard that neighbors wanted to demo it because it's bringing their property values down. Hopefully the house will get restored before the myopics have it destroyed.

A gouache sketch done on the Caltech campus. A wedding and a Quinceanera were going on around us. It didn't occur to me at the time to drop a few pink dresses into this view. The moment has passed.

blue sun

A day of sketching in Chinatown inspired this fictional take on the location. For the browncoats, there is a nod to Whedon's Firefly here..
