A Skyline In Continuous Line

13 Sep

Gateshead 3

 

Here’s a quick drawing I did in Gateshead the other day. Gateshead is a town built on the southern bank of the River Tyne opposite the city of Newcastle; they’re connected by seven bridges. I’m standing on the Gateshead side scribbling the Newcastle skyline. It’s a great higgledy piggledy skyline, with lots of different centuries jumbled together.

I used the continuous line technique to draw it as I thought it suited the higgledy-piggledy-ness of the scene. It’s a drawing method where your pencil or pen never leaves the page. I find it’s the best method of getting the proportions and perspective in complex scenes reasonably okay.

    Haven’t tried that in ages. Maybe time to give it another go?

      I like to dust off these techniques now and again, sharpens my drawing skills 🙂
