A friend sent me a photograph and asked if I thought it would make a better oil painting or a pencil drawing.
Nothing to see here, folks; just move on. . .
What I mean is that there is very little color to see, so I recommended a pencil drawing. I ordered a good print from Shutterfly, but decided I couldn’t wait for it to arrive to begin drawing, because drawing is my favorite thing. Besides, this might be a lot harder than it looks, and there is a deadline.
There may or may not be a teensy structure that is very important to the friend/customer on the far right. We know it is there, but it isn’t visible.
I can visualize where the structure belongs, but not the shape of the roof, or how much of the roof might even show. Good pencilization requires this information. This scene is a short 1/2 mile walk from home so I can meander over with a camera and see if the structure shows.
Meanwhile, keep drawing. . . one day my
prince prints will come.
