Crystal Amber Industrial Sand

Cement Plant #1, Ink & watercolor by Jana Bouc

On Tuesday night we sketched at this dilapidated old sand plant/cement factory. For the first hour the sun was setting and everything was aglow and then suddenly it was too dark to see.
It's always so much fun to see everyone's individual take on the scene. I did some research to learn more about the history of the factory and wrote a bit about what I found out on my blog here.

As usual Cathy got in the most sketches of the area:

Micaela took her time with one sketch and captured the scene from top to bottom:

Sonia noted that as the sun set, the old cement factory was bathed in gold.

  1. I am awed out of my mind, guys, at your sketching those structures. They have such power to them. And the light on them is stunning.

  2. Love how the golden light transformed these- and it is fun to see so many different takes on the same structure.
