I have really enjoyed this wet weekend. It hasn't been too cold and the rain not as threatening as was predicted. After morning coffee with a slice of my wonderful homemade Portuguese Sweet Bread and a scrambled egg I headed off to the gym for a morning workout. Along with my ipod, towel and water bottle I took my moleskine, W&N travel wc palette with Niji wc brush and my Lamy fountain pen. After the workout I sat in the car for about 1/2 hour and began this sketch of the gym. I wanted to be faithful to the structure but quickly realized I hadn't been as observant as I should have been. So I thought I would then just concentrate on the shapes and then make the sketch 'pop' by adding bold colors. I like it!!!
