EDiM #107

May 8, 2011

May 7 & 8, 2011. Every Day in May 2011; Every Day Matters challenges #107 (Draw where you get your news from) and #108 (Draw a lightbulb)

My local newsagency is one of the few times I get to draw buildings in this month of daily challenges. I have almost no idea what I’m doing, but I was determined not to fall back on my standard interpretations when it comes to architectural illustration. I’m learning as I am going  with media like Winsor & Newton watercolour, Reeves gouache and Prismacolor pencils – anything it takes to capture what I find interesting about the scene.

The eco lightbulb sketch shows the black silouhette card fastened to the side in the closed or “night” position. Sketching into the light of a lightbulb!
