Another sketch from New York to finally get us all caught up again, this time of the front of a house if which I loved the door and the tree out front. Again this one took a little bit longer and I tried to get a cleaner more illustrative look to it than usual which as with yesterday I’m really happy with. I’ve also started adding the white gel pen back into the supplies that I use as this is helping with correcting and stray lines or adding the white bits back in when I accidently get carried away with rendering (in this sketch for example, the white line down the side of the tree. Definitely think that I’ll try and continue like this rather than the looser ones that I was a while back but, given that its me, I could change my mind tomorrow!

Till next time!

(Were also now all caught up again! Yay!)

So, another new sketchbook for day 697 and I wanted to go back to the whole door thing for new sketchbooks so did some searching on google for some interesting looking doors, coming up with this door of the cathedral in Lichfield which had some lovely wooden doors with filigree on it (I think that’s the correct term) and some nice contrast with the shadows and the lights. Pretty loose interpretation of it overall (with some slightly whacky proportions) but a fun little sketch to start, what I think, is the 12 sketch book!

Till next time!
