Raleigh Revisited

So I went back to Raleigh this weekend, where I went to high school. I hadn't been downtown in about two years since my family moved, so I enjoyed making the trip back. We needed to do some contours of a downtown setting to I spent some time on Fayetteville Street, Harget Street, and Salisbury Street. It was nice to sit out there but I was getting really hot as time passed.

What I really liked about the above view on the right is the repetitive feel of the picture. The trees and everything were lined up perfectly, I just had to draw it.
I know that this picture came out looking like crap, but it was such a cool building I had to attempt to draw it. I now know that the cooler it is the harder it is to draw. I couldn't quite grasp the flare out on the building, I think I may revisit this building in the future, I feel the need to beat it.

All of your drawings came out great! Its cool that you were able to go back to your hometown and draw some familiar sites.

I know what you mean about wanting to "beat" the building. I have a few already.
