A few weeks ago I noticed ominous crunching sounds while cycling and brought my bike to McCully Bicycle to have the bottom bracket replaced. It was interesting to see the axle dismantled, all the specialized tools that were used, and what caused the crunching sounds. I had a good experience and thought I would return to sketch the shop.
As this is a bicycle repair shop, there are many bicycles, tools, boxes, spare parts, and people to sketch. It was challenging to realistically capture the repair shop without going into enormous detail. What do you include in the sketch? It’s definitely a learning process. I look forward to returning to make another attempt.
I used watercolors, crayons, and a black liquid ink pen on dry-media 9x6in. paper.
