Recessed Entrances

The “recessed entrance” is a common architectural feature in commercial Charlottetown; it’s been my arch nemesis for the last month as I make my way through drawing many of these buildings.

There’s a lot that I’m unhappy with in this sketch of Receiver Coffee–the perspective on the railing, the irregularity of the windows on the second floor, the tree–but I’ve very proud of my handling of the recessed entrance. I think I’ve figured it out. Primarily revelation: the source code for sketching is all right there staring you in the face.
