Townscapes.

Exercise 1 Sketchbook of townscape drawings.

I chose a street in the middle of Canterbury that has lots of old buildings in it and an interesting curve. I tried different positions and realised that there were lots of intersections to draw. Finally liked the view of an old building – now a hotel with a jewellers on the ground floor – and the view of the street beyond which revealed other buildings.

At times the light was great – shining in the distance and on the opposite side of the street and creating lines of light on the tiled road in front of me.  There was quite a lot of colour and found the watercolour pencils useful.
