Wharf Hill Antiques in Smithfield, Virginia.
I love Smithfield, it has the prettiest buildings (painted ladies) and old stores. Being as I usually go there with family, sketching on the spot is not really possible. Paris Breakfast's wonderful store fronts have inspired me many times though, and I took my wonderful, trusty camera, and took many pictures so I could draw them later :). This is from one of them :)
The only problem with sketching at night, is my light- it was only AFTER I sprayed with fixative (pastels in a journal make this a necessity) that I realised I had missed a spot and made my windows crooked LO
