Drawing Architecture- Sketch Walk and Talk

An old sketch from one of my sketchbooks
I love drawing architecture. Recently I was asked to draw a shop in Broadway,Worcestershire for a lovely family who were moving. I had completed the drawing but realised that I hadn't realised the decoration on the lampost, so stopped in Broadway to get the details correct. As you can see the shop had closed,hence brown paper in the window. I apologise for the photos, it probably would have been better if I had scanned the pictures,

The next picture is of an Dorothy's home in Vineyard Street, Winchcombe. It was drawn on mottled paper so I was able to use white to highlight the windows etc.

This is a really bad photo but it is a drawing I produced as a wedding present for a couple who got married in Sudeley Castle.

This is a summer sketch from one of my books, Its the bridge in Burford, Oxfordshire. The nice thing about sketching outside is you don't have to be precious and you remember the weather and who you talked to....I often remember very little when I look back at photos! I usually do a simple pencil sketch first, so that I can get the angles right, then do the main lines followed by he details.

This is St Peters Church in Winchcombe. I wanted to show a different angle. Most of the time I carry pens and a sketchbook, I don't always feel inspired but the more you do the better you get.

It's worth drawing outside, a lot of people walk past and don't stop so you don't have to feel embarrassed. Over the last couple of years I have set up a sketch walk and Talk morning as part of the Winchcombe year will be no please look out for the brochure and come along...I don't know the date yet but it will be in May.
