Day 558: Whitby Chapel, Yorkshire

Day 558: Whitby Chapel, Yorkshire

So, for today I decided to sketch this old ruined chapel in Whitby, Yorkshire. Something I would imagine was quite a grand abbey at one point given how large it seems to be though it does seem to be a bit isolated (though this could just be the photo). Anyway it was a fun little sketch where I tried to not go too heavy on the shading it to try and make bits stand out but I’m not too sure if I like it (I definitely prefer the style of yesterdays sketch over this one).

Still the actual sketch is pretty nice and fairly accurate given that it was done quite quickly, though I’m hoping the actual image is a bit more interesting than this blog post as I don’t really have much else to say so yer, at least were all caught up again. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and hopefully I’ll be back tomorrow!

Till then!

Day 557: Old Mill, Upper Slaughter

So for yesterday I decided to try and sketch this lovely little water mill in Upper Slaughter (yes that is actually it’s name. God know what’s happened here to give it this name. I’m hoping it just had a lot of Slaughterhouses or something like that). Anyway I really liked the photo and the at the waterwheel was attached to these lovely old factories for decided to sketch it.

I also really happy with the way this came out. Not entirely sure why as some of my others have been a lot more refined but this is one of my favourites that I’ve done recently (maybe even for a long time). I think its the fact that I actually managed t get some definition between the different arts of the structure despite the actual tones not being that different from each other.

I also really like the sky in this despite it being done pretty crudely. Will definitely have to try this way of sketching a bit more in the future.

Till then!
