Every once in a while, I end up doing a perspective drawing. It happened about the same time last year in Paris. The drawing above is also a work in progress, based on street scapes from the mid to late 1800s of Portland and California. Just finished reading True Grit by Charles Portis, and re-reading Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt. Some books are that good!
Detail from an illustration in progress. Back to pen and ink, frisket film, newsprint transfer. Below are studies for crows used in the same set of illustrations. It is trickier than it looks to draw a silhouette of a crow without it coming across like a pigeon.
Happy Canada Day! I know -- this is not even a Canada Goose. I joined a sketch crawl this weekend, and did some one-minute pencil sketches. The one below inspired the finished illustration above in watercolour, wax, ink, acetone transfer.
