Day 1016: Eltz Castle, Germany

Day 1016: Eltz Castle, Germany

Another lovely castle this time located in Germany. Containing more towers and elements than the previous one and possibly constructed on the side of a mountain. Prefer the outcome of this sketch as well when compared to yesterdays one as I think I managed to get the proportions and perspective down a lot better. Still a nice little sketch of a ornate castle.

Till next time!

A lovely castle located in Austria for day 1015 with this really nice looking wooden topped tower in the middle. Like the plants climbing up the side of the tower as well and the height variations in the buildings around it. though I managed to accidently get the perspective a bit wrong on it which was a shame but there we go, still not a bad sketch.

Till next time!

Day 1013: Strode Dining and Tearoom, Barrington Court

Did this sketch from a photo that I took while we were at Barrington Court, a lovely National Trust property in Barrington near Ilminster, Somerset. Lovely house with some lovely gardens which unfortunately were baking hot on the day. Still I managed to get a couple of photos to do some sketching from one of which you can see above. A wing of the main house, this repurposed part of the building now houses some tearooms (cant remember what it used to be sorry) with lovely ground floor door like windows and some accompanying foliage. Really happy with how it came out as well (and I actually managed to get an accurate number of doors and windows so thats a bonus!) and I really enjoy sketching these old buildings and stately homes and hope it shows!

Till next time!

Just a quick and simple sketch of some arches from a completely random building that I found. Again, not much else to say about the actual sketch. Its a bit messy compared to some of the more recent ones but I think you can still make out the arches in it that were the subject!

Till next time!

Day 1010: Barn

Just a simple barn for day 1010. Not really sure there was any particular reason that I choose it over anything else I just liked the building and am happy with how it came out in the end.

Till next time!

Day 999: Abandoned Lighthouse

Day 999: Abandoned Lighthouse

Saw this interesting looking lighthouse for day 99. Liked how it looked more like a warehouse than a lighthouse, distinguishable only by the tower to the rear of it as a lighthouse. Liked how it came out as well with its industrial look and simple shapes.

Till next time!

Day 998: Dovecote

Day 998: Dovecote

Quite a simple little sketch for day 998 as I think I was pretty busy and wanted something fast and not overly detailed leading to this Dovecote. I think the speed also made the sketch suffer a little as its not nearly as detailed and concise as the sketches I have been doing up until this point so, at least in my case, even when sketching, it pays to take your time!

Till next time!

Day 990: El Patio Cathedral – La Habana, Cuba

Went a bit dark in this one with this lovely looking bell tower as the focus. Not sure why I went dark but no worries it gives a bit of a different look to it. I also think it may have been down to trying to sketch with a different pen that has a slightly wider nib than the usual 0.1mm nib that I usually use. Either way they both produce nice sketches and I think I might so some more with this one!

Till next time!

Day 989: Cuban Car

Another bit of a random jump in themes but this time we have this lovely little old car sat in front of a building somewhere in Cuba where, apparently they have a real thing for old American cars from, what I assume is around the 50’s and 60’s. Can’t say I blame then that much though, they do look lovely!

Till next time!
