I said I’d post the various bits and bobs I did for the art course up here. This isn’t my first drawing, but it’s the first that was big enough to be worth posting, the others have all been warm up exercises. It’s a deliberately loose style, as I was drawing with a cotton bud. I’m reasonably pleased with it, but it doesn’t sit on the page very well.
First I drew some guidelines for proportion in pencil, then I painted the reflections in the windows in with masking fluid before drawing the main sketch in sepia ink using a cotton bud.
I added the shadows to the windows with marker pen, I deliberately choose the think pen to go with the rough blocky nature of the drawing done with a cotton bud.
I removed the masking fluid and darkened some areas with more ink.
I drew in details with a black fine liner.
The finishing touches were green pencil on the copper roof and yellow pencil on the areas of lighter brick work.
