Nothing Fancy

22 Dec

stripped back

Another vista from the old church, a spooky corridor beyond a heavy door. It was a dark and rainy day when I took the photos, no artificial light and precious little natural light which added to the atmospherics of the place. I decided not to use a flash because I wanted the deep shadows and high contrast, the effect of chiaroscuro. I used the simplest materials – a small white conte crayon into a Daler Rowney spiral bound A4 Ebony sketchbook. Nothing fancy.

    These are a wonderful group of drawings, so much suggested with just a touch of conte on paper.

      Thank you Kate, I’m trying to get away from my comfort zone of tight pen drawings 🙂
