This is the first of a series of pictures I’ve got planned, I’m calling the series “Look Up!”.
I’m intending to convey that child-like feeling and sense of wonder when staring skywards at the base of a tall building. Regardless of age, one is dwarfed by the enormity.
You may recognise this one from before when I did a video of drawing out the buildings. As you maybe noticed it was drawn freehand and without a ruler, however what you probably wouldn’t have seen were 5-6 light pencil strokes which were drawn with a ruler so that I had a good sense of the perspective whilst drawing my ink lines, after all there’s no rubbing out with those!
Since then all I’ve done is to add the sky which completed the picture to my eyes. There’s often a point where you do too much to any work of art, hopefully getting more experienced at knowing when to stop now.
This is available to buy as a professionally produced art print on 300gsm lustre art card. As the original was drawn on A4 that’s the size I’m having it printed at to keep the quality.
The next in the series will be on A3, possibly even A2 if I can find a print shop that can do a high enough quality scan at that size for a high enough quality reproduction.
