- more like if you compare my speed of working, it's less like a walk and more like a crawl.
Never a sprint, and rarely a run. Although, if I'm sitting with my easel opposite the subject I'm drawing as in the preliminary drawing for Downham's King's Walk where I'm going for fast observation, quick decisions and blocking in general shapes - often moving the outlines of buildings as the drawing shrinks and expands - not always quite sure what the finished layout will be - then it's probably like a frenetic jog or power walking.
|Preliminary layout - frenetic jog or power walking.|
|1st pencils, clarifying shapes and details - working from reference - more like a stroll...|
|2nd pencils - more clarification, shape and detail - a steady walk this time.|
|OK - not quite sure how I want to interpret the line work at this point, so a measured gait...|
|I want to keep the Chapel in the background, but undecided how much detail to include - light touching in of the outline and general detail. This stage - definitely a crawling King's Walk!|
Where did I put the Red Bull?
