Here are two more sketches of the same intersection as yesterday’s sketch in Old Town at Twiggs and San Diego Avenue that I dew in this past week. In each sketch I stood where a line (the double yellow line in the street or the crack in the sidewalk) recedes back to the vanishing point on the horizon. Although the line acts as a reference and helps me think about how to draw each scene, in retrospect I see that I still have inaccurately drawn objects in each sketch. I think my intuition about how to draw cityscapes leads me astray. I should probably draw many similar scenes and take the time to measure how the parts fit together.
Both sketches are gouache and pastel, one on white paper and one on black.
