Day 911: Down and Out

continuing with the whole abandoned and ruined theme we have this sketch of a lovely wrecked WWII plane, sitting in the water on this shoreline. Loved the skeletal look of the various bits and the scuffed paintwork on the side and hope that I’ve managed to do the reference image justice with it!

Till next time!

Right time to do some catching up with these blog posts as I’m beginning to really fall behind again, starting with this WW2 British fighter classic, the Spitfire, another sketch demanded by my son. A nice and quick sketch that was done at a weird angle to see if I could get the perspective correct on it. Not sure I got it completely, but I think I just about managed it, was definitely easier thinking of it as shapes rather than a actual plane, thats for sure!

Till next time!

So, decided to do another Bi-plane for day 836, this time however I managed to find this more modern version with a fully enclosed cockpit (that I genuinely didn’t know actually existed till I found it on Pinterest lol. Really nice looking plane actually and very quick to sketch which was nice with it also coming out quite nicely. Oh and it has sons seal of approval as well which is good!

Till next time!

Time taken: 20 minutes

Son demanded a bi-plane for day 835 so of course being the dutiful father that I am I decided to draw one for him (I mean it helps that I’m quite fond of the old WW1 style planes and the whole Biggles books). Not actually sure what this bi plane is other than that its a British marked one but by and large they all tended to look fairly similar back then. Son also likes the drawing which is the best seal of approval and a good thing so I’m happy and like that sketching the basic shapes is getting easier for me.

Till next time!


Day 401: St Catherines Chapel

So, another sketch from Exeter for this one and a pretty simple one at that. It’s of the old ruined chapel that sits pretty much smack bang the middle of the town (well ok slightly off the middle as it’s on one of the streets parallel to the high street but its close enough). Currently standing as a sort of mini museum with several plaques and informational signs around it I thought it would make a nice and simple sketch subject.

I do also quite like how this one came out and it was a lot quicker to do than they usually are which was a bonus. Not much else to say about this other than that though so I’ll leave you all here for the night as I have another early shift tomorrow morning and see you all tomorrow.

Till then!
