Adagio hotel sketch / by debbie rich

Last year, I hung out with a coworker who was staying in the Adagio Hotel in downtown San Francisco. She had wrangled an upgrade to their penthouse suite and the space was impressive. It was especially stunning in the evening as darkness fell and the lights of the city appeared.

I took a bunch of photographs at the time and especially love this angular lines and shapes of this view.

Here's my first pass at the Adagio drawing, which is just colored pencil so far. I’m excited to take it further with oil pastels and maybe a little oil paint.
