I like to keep a sketchbook with me when I travel to record the places I visit. Sometimes I capture an interesting detail or in this case, the play of light in the space.
I usually work with an ultra fine point sharpie to delineate the edges of spaces and objects then follow on site with an immediate watercolor wash. Sometimes, hatching is used to add value depending on time available.
I rarely go back and alter a sketch done on site as I think of these field sketches as being very much in the moment.
