St Paul’s Cathedral drawn in ink and charcoal.
My initial sketch was in pencil from the roof of a shopping centre overlooking the cathedral.
I then took a few photos for reference and later on transferred my sketch over to a decent bit of paper, it’s 250gsm Bristol board, very white and very smooth.
I’d initially planned for it to be just an ink line drawing which I did with a dip-pen and sepia ink, it looks quite black unless in direct light. However having done Notre Dame with charcoal recently I thought I’d give it a go with some shading on this.
Glad I went for the charcoal as it’s added a nice bit of depth, it was never meant to be a masterpiece so a bit of messy dust and imprecision are quite welcome.
At the time of this web-post it’s for sale if anyone wants it, just £25 including postage globally with the button below – first come first served obviously. I’m just accumulating too many pictures here 😀
