I’m sure some of my blogreaders must be tired of all the cats.. So here’s something I never do, although I keep telling myself to try and get better at it: perspective drawing!
This is a scene I picked with “RandomStreetView.Com” – a website that sends you somewhere completely random at the click of a button! I did click a few times before chosing this one, which is a small town street in Canada. (See it here)
The perspective turned out surprisingly close to the original, even though I don’t do a lot of them.. The car was really difficult, though, and I did mess around with the ink while drawing the front and the wheels. This is the kind of sketch that works well for added watercolor. But the paper is awful – I have a new watercolor sketchbook waiting for when I manage to finish this one.. Can’t wait to get back to something that works!

I liked it Thomas. You captured the homeness of this area. Fernie, BC eh? Nice little place. We live in BC also….Prince George….bigger than Fernie. I think I like Fernie better. I like the quaintness of it.
What a coincidence 🙂 Fantastic how the internet can transport your just about anywhere in the world with just the click of a button to experience the homely feeling of Fernie, BC in Canada..
Thomas, that’s a wonderful drawing! You really did capture well what was in that picture!
I really like these trees. And just enough selected details on the house.
Thank you.. I think trees are really hard, and would like to do more of them from different distances.. There seems to be a fine line between a “mess of scribbles” and something that might be perceived as a tree!
My favorite pen/ink drawing to do is of a house/building……..you did well! I don’t enjoy trees/foliage either…..it’s tough to get the feeling of “individual leaves”……without going nuts.
Thanks :).. Yeah it’s really not easy to find the right abstraction.. And drawing individual leaves is just out of the question 😉
If I could have ‘liked’ this twice, I’d have done it. Well done. Perspective is challenging but you’ve done a fine job.
Thanks 🙂 !
there is a warmness to your drawing. 😀
