Notre-Dame de LourdesPosted: October 9, 2012
The concepts I learned at the Urban Sketchers Symposium are thankfully still rattling around in my brain somewhere and I remembered one of them yesterday when I started this drawing. Architects and sketchers Frank Ching and Liz Steel taught me the importance of giving a sense of the whole building even if you are drawing a detail of it. Several months ago I might have only drawn the silvery, fishscale dome of the church but this time I remembered to suggest the rest of the building including the golden madonna. I am starting to appreciate the format of my new Moleskine sketchbook that allows me to continue my lines like this.
