I discovered that the Bowdoin T station has installations of enlarged historic drawings and etchings of Boston. The USS Constitution nerd in me needed to draw the one of ships arriving in Boston Harbor.
That wraps up the c line, everyone! You can see Fenway off in the distance.
Blue line is coming soon!
This is one of my personal favorite sketches so far. It was Scooter City that day!
At the Kent Street station, I sketched a bit of the the gorgeous building that is Temple Ohabei Shalom. It is the oldest Jewish congregation in Massachusetts. While I sat sketching, a little boy and his grandmother were waiting for the train. The boy saw that I was drawing the Temple and said, “If you go across the street and through those doors and up the stairs somewhere up there is my classroom!” I asked him what he was learning and he answered in Hebrew.
I was going to finish this one the way I have finished most of the other T-scapes, but I realized I really like it just the way it is, sketchy blocks of color and all.
That building is the most beautiful Walgreens I’ve ever seen!
