Time taken: 30 minutes

So, back tot he 30 minute time limit now and here’s yesterdays sketch of this rather interesting underground station at Southwark. Not only is the aforementioned building interesting looking but I loved the skyline behind it as well with the tall buildings and rail bridge to the side (love that railbridge). Quite a complicated sketch to be honest with a lot of lines going everywhere and buildings to try and get to scale. Luckily I think I did a pretty good job with getting everything to scale and not having issues with not being able to fit stuff in. I also employed the whole, defining the subject technique to try and make it pop out a bit more. Would love to know what you guys think of that method?

So, to wrap up I enjoyed the sketch and the outcome, just wish that the underground station stood out a bit more.

Till next time!
