Day 624: 51 Queen St, Exeter (The Clock Tower)

Time taken: 30 minutes

So, moving into town this time with this iconic Clock Tower at the end Queens St (along which the aforementioned Exeter Central St. lies). Funnily enough, having looked into the history of this clock tower while trying to find its name, its a really, really ornate horse trough, so there you go. You learn something new every day.

Anyway I thoroughly enjoyed the sketch. Went a bit quicker with this one as you might be able to tell from the roughness but I quite like that about it. I also purposefully made the background of it even sketchier and out of focus to try and make the focus and foreground pop a bit more.

Not sure if I really achieved it but nevermind, I’m not that bothered as I enjoyed it and that’s the main thing.

Till next time!
