"May your heart always be joyful.
May your song always be sung."
5x8" sketch moleskine, pitt pen
Another sketch from our flight last week from a photo from Flickr [ugh, can't find the original photo to link, sorry dear photographer]. It's a good thing that photos are FLAT and don't move. In real life, when I look at something the lines and angles and shadows always look different each time I look at them and that freaks me out and makes me really frustrated.
Why did I pick this to draw? I liked the lack of angles and curves. I practiced working from the center toward the outside and getting the key lines (like the windows, the building edges, etc) in the right spots relative to the other lines.
The lines are wonky and things don't line up as they should... and I sort of fumbled along with the textures (wood, tile, brick, etc). It's a quagmire of lines! Here's a link to the first photo sketch of the trip, the bicycle. On the plus side, it's super engaging to draw from a photo and these two photos kept me quite busy on the flight! More sketches from photos and it's about drawing, not the drawing.
