Keep up the good work. I love UE photography, but to be honest there is just tons and tons and tons of it. There is much less in the way of UE sketching, painting, and drawing. Plus with sketching and drawing, I think you get to inject much more of your unique personality into your craft.

@fiftyone_eggs
Thank you! Yah, I've been trying to get more of my artist friends to come sketching with me when I go urban exploring and they've made some cool work! They haven't posted them anywhere yet though. And some of the artists I know like to just take a ton of photos for reference later for illustration work or concept art (I like to get reference photos as well but I have a terrible camera).

@Void Diver
Thanks! I post more of my work on here: https://www.instagram.com/misastein/

I went to an abandoned silicon metal smelting plant in eastern Washington yesterday and did 2 sketches on location, and a watercolor sketch at an aluminum plant at night that was near by. I was really impressed by the first location, and I hope to go back again in the future. I will be uploading the photos I took in another thread. :)

A more practical solution is what a watercolor artist I knew, Jack Kaiser used to do.
Grab it with cam, recreate it latter on paper, canvas, etc.
This flow process worked very well for him.


There is a great challenge, and indeed joy, when you put yourself in a situation that is less than perfect. It's one thing to do things on an easel with all canvas and time in the world. When you're leaning against a wall with your sketchbook propped in the crook of your elbow and the light changing every time you look up it changes the whole feeling of things.

I suck at both though, so ya know ;P Lol.

OP, love the work! Definitely a complimentary process to the photography that takes place here. I enjoy the different perspective. Whereas a picture shows you exactly what you're looking at, these sketches allow you to imagine.

Tried getting into the flour mill too but couldn't find a way in. We ended up at the same place you did, still a really cool find!

Did the cement place you posted happen to be located in the town of Concrete?

Watercolor sketch done during a scouting trip at a certain mill. I don't think this painting is that successful, but it was fun to do!

Keep at it.
Water color painting is a difficult discipline to learn.

Photos you shoot today may be your templates for future paintings.
I knew a successful water color artist who deliberately shot farm houses for years and later put them on paper by brush.

@blackhawk
Thanks!
Yes, I love taking a lot of reference photos for art pieces!
Once the weather is colder, I'll probably spend more time doing art pieces of abandoned structures than visiting them

That's a good plan...
Winter can offer opportunity; especially in heavily overgrown sites.
In the summer the vegetation can be too thick to get good shots or even walk easily through.
No ticks to contend with either if below 45F or so.

I recently did some plein air painting at an abandoned factory. The finished oil painting is on a wood panel and took around 30 minutes to complete. My set up was just a pochade box duct taped to a camera tripod.

Pretty ingenious field kit! Plus, great subject, that spot holds a fond place in my heart.

@AaronNi
Yes, this spot is really awesome

These paintings were done in my studio based off of photos I took at an abandoned factory. I'll probably do a color study of this factory soon.

@Mstein Talented work - thanks for sharing. One of my long-time dreams is to finally turn some of my favorite photographs into paintings.

Nice work! A very creative take on UE. I love art and music, but have talent in neither... :-/

Genius! I love these! Very, very creative and great use of supplies on hand. Feel free to use any photos of mine for subject matter if you like. I'm an artist as well so I'm in full support.



Yo, yo Mr Ni!!
