Another look at a lakeside with this one in the same vein as the ones that we saw not that long ago. I think this was probably a day when I wanted to be able to do something quickly as there isn’t a lot of detail in this one. This is also the reason why the actual image I’m showing is small. It makes the sketches look a bit clearer when I shrink them when stippling. The mountain in the background for example, didn’t look that much like a mountain until I shrunk it. In fact, to illustrate the point (pun intended), here’s the original image to compare.

The final one of these Lakeside landscape sketches with this view of some tall pines and what is menat to look like some mountains in the background. Again theres not a whole lot to say about it really that hasn’t been said about the others. A nice little sketch of some pine trees!

Till next time!

Another sketch of a lakeside, this time even with the lake being even more obscure than the last time. I can’t actually remember the day that I did sketch this but I’m assuming I didn’t have much time to get it done seeing as this doesn’t really show all that much other than some pine trees. Still, the pine trees that are still nice pine trees so never mind!

Till next time!

Going to be looking at a bit of a run on landscapes now, focusing around lakes and the same sort of foliage and look. Starting with this one. Other than the lake which I’m not sure I managed to represent all that well I really like the rest of this one, especially the trees and how I managed to cliffs in the distance at the centre of the sketch actually look like they were menat too!

Till next time!

Loved this simple image of a couple of people walking along what I assume is a beach against a shadowed foreground. which I thought would lend itself well to the pen and ink style of the stippling. Quite fun a little sketch as well which I think came out well though I wish there was a better way to define the sky in the background and the cloud shapes.

Till next time!

So, continuing with the Brutalism that I said would be a bit prevalent for a while we take a look at this bus stop that is all sorts of weird. Very different sorts of concepts going on here, one being that its obviously designed in very minimalist material and rather bland looking but then, you have a number of different elements on it that definitely serve no other function than being aesthetic. Weird but awesome!

Till next time!

Day 946: Waterwheel

Bit of a change in building type for day 946 but still along the same lines for the theme in this waterwheel sketch (again from a forest setting). I think I have a bit of a soft spot for these alongside the one that I seem to have for churches as I just love the look of them. Again a little sketch that I’m happy with so we’ll leave it at that and carry on catching up!

Till next time!

Another little forest cabin again for day 945 just because I love doing these little things and trying to figure out the best and quickest way of simulating the all the trees around them in the background to create the setting. Pretty sure this one works a bit better than the last one so obviously I did something right. Not much else too say though and as I’m really behind with blogging I want to keep these short so here we go!

Till next time!

Loved this sketch and the actual reference image. Really simple but I just like how it came out as I always struggled with tryignt o emulate a road receding into the distance. Do kind of wish that I’d put a bit more tone in for the background mountain range but other than that I’m happy with it!

Till next time!
