Another 5th Street Arcades

Here's another sketch from our sketch outing at the 5th Street Arcades (Formerly known as the Euclid Arcades, also formerly known as the Colonial Arcades).  We went Sunday afternoon, and we were still pretty surprised at the amount of people that come through there.  It is a good "cut through" to get from Euclid to Prospect.  I've been in there on Fridays, and it's pretty hopping at lunch time with the little food court (much better food options than Tower City's food court), the farmers' market, and all of the little shops open.

We should have sketched them, but they had these weird rolly/rocking chairs that almost looked like thumbtacks that we all took turns trying.  They were shockingly comfortable.

I'll be posting our next sketch outing in the next day or so, so keep watching here or find us on Facebook at Urban Sketchers Cleveland.  We'll be sketching the last Sunday of every month from 2-4pm.  Though, we'll have some ad hoc ones here and there based on special events or just when the mood strikes us.

5th Street Arcade (old Euclid Arcade)

Here's my attempt at the old fashioned staircase, near Euclid. The angles and perspective were a challenge. Really enjoyed the outing and drawing with our group of awesome sketchers.
