Gowanus Canal

A very sunny day but it was still great to come back to the Gowanus canal because it gave me the chance to sketch industrial buildings....
The first sketch was our first stop, I think someone said is was a cement plant(?). 
This was on the bridge behind(next to?) Whole Foods(which was also very nice). It was nice and shady and not a bad view. 
Awesome place to sketch! It was great of the Gowanus Conservancy to let us come and sketch. 


  1. You did a great job of capturing the gritty scenes of the neighborhood. Nice depth of the view beyond on the second sketch, and the textures of the first one give the building some weight!

  2. Nice! You really nailed the cement factory.

  3. Ditto Susan and Amy. I'm so impressed with the first drawing. I was totally intimidated by the Whole Thing.

  4. Nice job on both of these! That location is a sketcher's paradise! Sorry I missed our return there.
