But first - let's exercise.
The process is simple enough - first you map some main objectson your paper, then you add details. Front view, center view, back view. Same with shading.
That's the sketch - it took me about 15 minutes to complete it.
It wasn't difficult. As always, I used helping dots and lines to map every object properly.
For the challenge I planned to go outside and draw but I didn't. I did take a picture. This is an alley in my neighborhood. I looked for a simple frame and that's what I found.
It might be a bit more complicated than the one in the lesson but, after all, it is a challenge!
So first - I mark my guiding dots and lines for basic items (3H pencil).
I actually erased a lot since it had plenty to do with perspective and I'm still not great at it. My challenge was not to be too detailed.
Obviously, a real learning is in these challenges. It took me way longer than 10 minutes to complete. I had to see. I had to think. I had to plan the sketch all by myself.
Here I added some details - made some actual lines, did some foliage and benches.
I didn't go too much into making it look realistic. What was important for me is too roughly show what there is. Although I am pleased with how the small palm trees came out.
The challenge sketch doesn't look good to me at all, but it's a challenge and it's supposed to be difficult.
It was the first time in years that I did an outdoor drawing. It was interesting and nice. I can't wait for more chances to draw outdoors.
I wish you a great day,
