The Adelmann Building, Inked

Adelmann Building

If I thought the Adelmann Building would be a lot easier than the Egyptian Theatre, I was mistaken.  While not quite so intricately ornate, the Adelmann has its own quirks and embellishments.  The drawing and inking took far longer than I expected, although not quite as much as the Theatre.  I decided to remove the wooden picnic tables in front and replace them with an umbrella table that had been there in previous years.  I don’t have anything against the rustic tables currently there, but I think that this building is a bit more elegant than that.

The drawing is finally ready for watercoloring and I hope this phase goes a bit more according to schedule.  I think you’ll like the colors.

    It’s looking good! A long time ago I was inside that corner pagoda before at night. The lights inside were bright but it was dark out on the street. Talk about feeling exposed!
    It’s a really nice drawing, even before the colors.

      Thanks, Des. I think it is still a restaurant, although now I think a part of the building is a wedding/event venue. It would be fun to sit there and look out over the other buildings around the corner. We ate at the sushi place below last November. Way more food than we expected to get based on what we buy here in Indiana.
