Sketching from a window seems like a sound plan. I like the way you've selectively coloured this - nice work.
This is lovely, I don't quite understand the clever / stupid thing, but then I've just had some real "mayhofer home dstilled schanpps as it's Christa's Birthday.This (sketch, not the schnapps) would appear to join up with the sketch you mention, but is from a slightly higher elevation i.e. one storey up?I like it. Dude. you rock.
I like the composition on the first one better, I think the side of the church or whatever on the left side sort of looks like a blank & it rocks the composition, but other than that pretty nice.
I really like this. I've been getting into the Faber-Castell markers. Love the medium, and you can do so much with just a few colors. Thanks for the inspiration.
I'll come out in support of this zoomed in sketch of the scene. You've just used your bionic eyes and brought the background closer. I really like the bold dark line separating the foreground from the background and I love minimalist approach to the foreground. You crossed the clever/stupid line loads of times but only in your private life, not your art!
I agree with Hans, though the height of the tower in the foreground in relation to the background varies, so it can't only be a zoom.Hmm- clever / stupid surely has a big bold line inbetween too, though it can sometimes be crossed swiftly. Loui's restaurant / bar in Solden was one which worked in reverse, really dodgy comment upon entry, could have resulted in jail, but no, we all made friends with the locals.
Gillian, In this weather it's the only plan.Moish, yes I'm still looking sideways at this one.Dan, thanks and you're welcome.Hans, you nailed it, as for the clever stupid thing, I battle with it everyday.Fraser, It was the same view from the same window but you could well be forgiven for finding a multitude of mistakes.How could I ever forget that night in Loui's, a truly dodgy comment that I felt fortunate to walk away from. It is indeed a thin line.
I definitely feel stupid now, nothing new there :-/
I just want to know what was said in Louis...
I prefer this view, the strong black line and tower lead the eye into the city and the Manhattan skyline. This kind of view is so hard for me to sketch, I get completely lost amongst all the buildings!
I'm with Hans! The high contrast and minimalist foreground makes this one really attractive Stephen.I'm working on my doctorate in stupid. I know it when I see it, and this ain't it :-)Tim
Hans, I'll have to whisper.Rosa, after I've laid in some major landmarks, it more about pattern making if that makes any sense.Tim, I have that doctorate, it's working out fine. Thanks and Happy New Year!
