Pike Place Market Study, Seattle

Laying out the structure of the foreground elements initially helped with accuracy of the middle-ground and background elements.  Knowing what to include and what to edit is also an approach, as with a busy scene of the 'market', there can be a lot of information.  Use less line and texture to create spatial depth and atmospheric perspective. Great sunny day, good company.
