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!

Day 973: Old Industrial Crane

Day 973: Old Industrial Crane

Old school industrial today with this old harbour crane still standing proud. Love how spindly and fragile it looks compared to the big harbour cranes we have today and I liked the contrast between the shadows and the light bits.

Till next time!

Loved this old photo of what St Pancras station used to look like with all the steam trains waiting at the platforms and the mixture of goods and passenger trains. Also find the old signalling really weird to look at with the Semaphores being wired up to something. Not really all that sure how they work with the wiring but it sort of looks like s hybrid signalling system between the electric and the semaphores. Also enjoyed trying to make the trains look like they are emitting smoke while waiting in the station to be loaded or unloaded which was interesting and I think I pretty much managed to achieve that look.

Till next time!

Another of the weird looking bus stops built during the USSR era, this one as unique and off looking as the last. Sort of a winged approach to this but it still stands out as a bus stop for sure (though this might just be because I’m British and all our bus stops look exactly the same, who knows). Sketch wise it was pretty simple but I still like how it came out!

Till next time!

So I thought I’d try something a bit different than usual with the subject matter and sketched this old ruined conservatory type building. Turned out to be a bit more difficult than I thought it would be but I persevered with it and think I got soemthign that looks like the subject matter. At least loosely anyway. The angles were especially difficult in this one as well and I think I managed to make it a bit too busy but, as I said, It looks roughly like the subject so it’s all good!

Till next time!

Day 954: Abandoned Train Station

So, this was a pretty cool looking building in Poland that had several different descriptions depending on what Pinterest image I was looking at. One said it was a industrial station and another said it was a passenger station (in which case it would be a pretty industrial looking passenger station). Either way it looked pretty awesome so I had to sketch it.

More boats because boats are awesome and water creates some lovely reflections which, as you can probably guess by the title of the actual blog post., is why I choose to sketch this particular image. Not sure if the whole ripples thing in the bottom of it is that obvious but I think the actual shape of the boat is an improvement over some of my other boats so thats good!

Till next time!

Another day, another boat this time another fishing vessel that may have seen better days (or may just have been beached for some reason). Quite liked the fact that the boat was in a slightly different angle to the other boats that I’ve sketched and showed more detail from the deck, which, although not emphasised was still a nice part, though, looking at it I may have emphasised it by way of not actually putting many dots in there.. hmm… which also means, I completely ignored the reference image value in that area. Anyway before I get confused, I hope you like another boat!

Till next time!

Day 915: A La Ronde, High Seat

Day 915: A La Ronde, High Seat

Another simple little photo from A la Ronde in the form of this lovely wooden seat on the outside of the building. Pretty basic in all honesty but the high back to it makes it look a lot more regal and grand than it is, plus I love the vines on it. Anyway I think the sketch captures the chairs sense and the shape quite well so it does the job and I enjoyed the process as well , as simple as the subject was.

Till next time!
