McDonalds Restaurant

This is a drawing I made of a downtown McDonalds located in the heart of Lynchburg, Virginia.  I was sitting across the parking lot from it admiring the building.   I really wanted to draw this strictly in black and white (no grays) but after laying down the inks I couldn’t help but wonder if some gray washes might add some dimension and realism to my picture.  It was looking rather flat otherwise.  So I did and I think it helped.  But I really admire those artists who can truly do justice to buildings and scenery such as this in a true black and white drawing.  I’m not there yet, but I’m trying.
