Blink and you’d miss it + artist Tanja Gant

IMG_4231Today’s DT – View between houses.The section of town I had chosen in Streetview for today held some basic houses, sturdy and not ornamented. As I ‘drove’ down the street I suddenly saw that the gap between two of the houses perfectly framed a little church in the distance.  Just luck, but worth a look. The state of this one is not complete, but I like the way the un-fussy drawing of the houses draws the eye to the detail in the distance.  I used intense ( for me )  cross-hatching in this picture and got a lot of the shading effects I wanted, as far as it went. The original underdrawing is shown below.

( ALL of my drawings in January, are from Google streetview of a town called Turiff, in Scotland. )IMG_4225

“I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. I’ve always had a need to express myself by creating images on paper. Although I am fascinated by art in general my greatest love is portraits. I strive to capture more than just the likeness of the model and when I manage to achieve the right look and attitude, that special something about the person I’m drawing, I feel that all the hard work was well worth it.”
