Architectural Detail is Fun

Here are some more in my ongoing attempt to get better at seeing things in light and shadow, breaking my twenty year addiction to drawing with just line. James Gurney got me started trying this. Fortunately for me Fuller Seminary and Pasadena are packed with fascinating architectural details to practice on.

BONUS! A free EBONY drawing pencil points to the first commentor who recognizes the first, unlabeled building.


  1. BONUS Answer:
    Herkimer Arms Apartments (Fuller Seminary Campus)
    527 E. Union St.
    Built: 1912
    Architect: Greene & Greene

  2. holy crap. That is such an amazingly detailed and correct answer that you win. I'll bring your pencil with my camera to your daughter's birthday celebration.

    Nicely done.
