Sketches of Savannah, Georgia by Built4ever Sketches of Savannah, Georgia by Built4ever
These sketches were done "on the street" in 1997, so they are pretty old. I arranged them on a sheet with a quick description of Savannah Georgia, a quirky decadent old city on the coast of Georgia, not terribly prosperous, but filled with mischief and history. It's chocked full of beautiful old buildings, well-preserved and otherwise. The two sketches to the left are done in pencil, the one to the right is a watercolor. I toned the top one on the left to a reddish terracotta, which is exactly what that house is, red brick and terracotta details and moldings. (possibly carved brownstone, I don't remember exactly.) I actually sat in the street with a drawing board and sketched these! I did a lot of that back then and recommend it to anyone. Nobody will bother you! They might even invite you inside the house you are drawing to see the inside. That's happened to me a lot! Enjoy!

I am going to school in Savannah, I saw this picture and immediately thought of Savannah, and then scrolled down to the description and -- Lo' and Behold!

I recognize the building on the right! I pass by it every day I do believe. :)

I did that Susan G Komen 5K run a few months ago, and got to run past these buildings with about 5000 other people in a big sweaty pack he he. Not easy to run on cobblestones! I saw several falls...You are a student at SCAD?
