Urban sketching with a friend

On a lovely sunny day, Suhita and I sat down to draw this building in Palo Alto. I was enamored with the fence but first a truck, then a bunch of cars parked in front of the building - so we kept a distant view and tried to get a feeling for the whole large plot of land with a warm-colored house that had two separate stove pipes and a cork oak growing in the front! 

These are two takes from the same point of view. One in gouache and another done with stencils, printing techniques, and some black and gray ink washes.
