EX. 4: Statues.

I tried drawing some statues high up on Canterbury cathedral on a freezing cold day – heads were tiny and as one got further down everything enlarged- to be seen in my sketchbook.

On two other occasions I visited the British museum – a statue in the main courtyard appeared higher than my eye level, then going up one of the sets of stairs it was nearly on my eye level . The crowds below offered a good example of perspective – appearing really tiny in the distance.

Another view high up offered a view of the  large ground space and the spectacular roof.

On one visit it started to get dark and this created potential for atmospheric work.Perpective looking down.jpgview from stairs in BM.jpgView of statue from the stairs in which it was just below eye-level.british museum as night falls
