Today’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. )
Today’s Artist. Tanja Gant – pencil and coloured pencil
“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.”
