My intention with this work was really just an exercise in composition, light and shade as I had never seriously attempted to draw anything architectural and was just trying my hand at it.
Here is a link to the photo that I used as a reference for this drawing.

I’ve always just loved art and my MO, is simply to produce art that I find interesting and that satisfies my own sense of what is aesthetically pleasing, but very much enjoy sharing what I’ve done with other artist’s and the world whenever possible, this is why I joined RB and it certainly hasn’t disappointed.

    you got some mad skills Buddy. most excellent. so many little fine details within a strong composition. be a good series.

  • Speaking of work, I just got back from some. Yeah, doing a series would be great and I actually went out and took score’s of shot’s of local character filled building’s and interesting alley way’s, but it’s all those little detail’s that just take to much time to draw. Thank’s for your most complimentary comment::))
