New quick sketch
« on: June 04, 2015, 08:51:24 PM »
Those who were around for last Summer's 30-day Sketchbook Challenge will remember I did a bunch of drawing around local churches. I had some downtime today between Schools and I had my sketchpad with me because the summer term's always affected by trips out that nobody tells me about.

I bet you can't spend 5 minutes in a church without finding something good to draw. Here's a detail from a 13th-century church in northern Essex. 4B pencil on cartridge; a 30-minute sketch. I'm back on the sketching trail :-)

That's pretty good for a 30-mn sketch. You have good proportions there. The column on the left of the window has a dark V-shape that is throwing me off a bit. I am not sure if it is supposed to come out or sunk in. Your foreground would need a little more details for depth perception. But I like the overall drawing.
