Sketch the Old Gas Station
Sketch the Old Gas Station is one in this series of four online workshops called Sketch Route 66. In this workshop we will sketch the Gay Parita Service station built in 1930 in Paris Springs, Missouri. Replete with signage and memorabilia, this will be great fun to sketch and we can even fill up with gas at 15¢ a gallon!
This workshop is filmed in real time (1 hour 28 minutes) and students can sketch along with the reference photos provided or they can apply the techniques they learn in this workshop to a reference photo of their own.
