Here it is, Finally, the final drawing. I took care and time to get the elements in the correct place and scale. Again I worked from life with easel set up at window. The connections between eye and hand are improving with all the practice.
I drew the plant in first using colouring pencils. I know you should build at the same time but wanted plant to be strongest element so did it this way. I imagined a reflection to show the presence of glass and lightly marked it in.
I used a water soluble colouring pencils together with water soluble pencil 8B to try to get a smother finish on the background thus sending it back. The clouds I took from a reference photo as there are still no clouds.
The clouds are ok. These are an ongoing project for me. They have the depth of field effect I was after. Remembering the further away the smaller and more bunched they become . The distant trees have got a bit dark with the detail. I kept adding this to brig them out of the clouds. The building are ok if a little dull! The plant I like. The reflections ok. Maybe in wrong place. I added a few reflected light or smears on window. The straight one works best.
Brick and tiles I was going to work some more but enoughs enough. I’v got to move on now.
Over all I have learnt loads on this assignment which I have worked pretty hard at. All though the outcome i no grate shakes the process has been valuable to me. I feel I am starting to try to draw in a more sophisticated way. although not there yet I am seeing little improvements, and increasing my knowledge around the subject.
Tis picture gives you an idea of the angle i was looking though the window. The plant had to raised to be in the frame. It was too bright outside to include the view. The phone camera couldn’t handle it. You will have to take my drawing for it.
