S. F. Fire Department Museum

Old Fire Truck. Colored ink and charcoal on matte board. Copyright 2013 by S. K. Cole.

This was drawn/painted on location at the San Francisco Fire Department Museum, sometime in the late 1970s. I loved the way the coiled-up old-fashioned fire hose looked when rendered in charcoal.

This is the only drawing/painting I saved from my old Location Drawing class at the Academy of Art University, which was taught by the legendary, long-time Illustration Department head, Barbara Bradley, who unfortunately passed away in 2002.
