Jekyll Island Club Hotel - This is a beginning reference sketch with pencil for a watercolor painting.   What a beautiful hotel.   I worked a lot today on trying to get the perspective right.   I pulled staight lines from several angles on the structure to one vanishing point.   Takes some time but my hope is I've worked out at least some of the perspective issues before I start the actual watercolor.
