Alleyways offer so much to the observer....too much!
Editing is an important part of the process, while trying to
represent spatial depth through perspective.
Again, foreground, middle-ground and background
comes into play. I find placing human scale in early
in the process helps create the understanding of space early.
True horizontal and vertical also helped in representing this dynamic view.

Nothing new here.
Lately, warming up with many investigatory sketches before one truly begins to depict/evoke an illustration.
My recent instruction from a fellow artist:
Maria Coryell-Martin stated it takes one (a master) to create 10,000 drawings before one has the potential call oneself a 'master'.
I began on one side of the building and then worked my way around to the other (non-sunny) side.
