Right, so apparently this type of sketch doesn’t work all that well either, much like the waterfall ones. Its meant to be a overview of a small town that I think, is in Spain rather than Austria as I’ve titled the sketch. Liked the view and wanted to see if stippling would be good for this sort of subject. Turns out, either the answer is no, or I really need to work on the subject matter. Either way I’m not that worried to be honest, I liked doing the sketch and if you really look at it you can make out some of the landmarks in the reference. Honest..

Till next time!

Time taken: 35 minutes

So, were at the final stop of our journey here in London Waterloo, a station that a lot of you have probably at least heard of as it is the countries biggest and most important railway station (though, as we’ve shown in sketches in the past, definitely not the only one in London). Again I did this one as a overview as it really is a huge building. I also choose to actually add some very basic outline sketches of the buildings that can be found around it as accurately as I could in the time that I was giving myself and I like how it turned out, though, ideally I would have liked to have made the buildings around it more detailed and just had the actual station done in a thicker line to make it pop out.

Still, I like the sketch and think its a nice way to finish our rail journey from Axminster to London Waterloo.

Till next time!

Time taken: 30 minutes

So, were in the penultimate station of our journey to London Waterloo, stopping at one of, if not the busiest (in terms of changes) stations in Europe, Clapham Junction where, as you can probably tell I choose to take a different approach with the sketch and went with a Ariel view of the station so that I could try and show you all the scale of the place.

Really enjoyed the Ariel view of it actually and it was great fun and different to draw it (plus it reminded me of one of my favourite artists, Stephen Wiltshire). I just hope that you all enjoy it too and can actually make things out in it.

Till next time!
