I’ve sketched the Burbank Theater before, but every time I drive past it I want to sketch it again, because it will be gone one day, very soon: you can see it in the boarded up windows and the dilapidated marquee. It still looks lovely, especially in the evening light.
Another fun little sign from not too far away: This backwards-Z shaped sign for The Bears, a dive bar and cocktail lounge on West San Carlos Street.
And finally, from that same evening of sketching, a very quick sunset sketch of The Western Appliance sign.
The more beautiful the light, the more fleeting it is, and by the time I was halfway through this sketch I was painting in the dark.
