Day 347: Basilica De Santa Maria del Frari, Venice
So were back in Venice for today’s sketch with another one of the many churches there, this time, the Basilica De Santa Maria del Frari. I choose this one mainly because I liked the way the photo was composed with the trees in the foreground creating a sort of frame and different look for a Venitian church without the usual waterside.
I also did this one in biro as I got a bit carried away using it while doing the usual biro under sketch and just thought, what the hell, let’s just go with it and not use any of the usual fineliner which I think has given the lovely church a much more blended appearance ( I really would use biros solely if it wasn’t for the whole lightfastness issue which is a shame).
Anyway, medium aside I really liked the subject and the way that the sketch came out. Again I did try and get something down a bit quicker than I usually do and again I failed as I went with a rather heavily detailed buildings but nevermind, I had the time and the result was nice so there we go.
Got to head out into town tomorrow for some stuff so might try and get something from there to draw for tomorrow but we’ll have to see.
