 In this session our goal is to combine small stories of trendy fashion as showcased at the store fronts and by the shoppers passing by, to capture the colorful food vendors and activity, all in the context of the modern architectural design of the Mall at the Millenia as a background.
This is a great place to go vignettes sketching, focusing on small composed scenes!
It is an indoor sketch out as we try to avoid the Florida summer's high temperatures.
