Ruskin And Chocolate

3 Aug

Here’s one I scribbled yesterday when I took my little nephew to the top of the Swansea Tower, Wales’ tallest building. I’m getting a bit better at drawing the cityscape; I’m developing a shorthand of marks that are individual to me so I don’t slip into doing an architectural drawing. I did a short course on the Ruskin style of topographical drawing a few years back and although it was interesting (it was in his house, Brantwood, in the Lake District) and also good discipline, that style of drawing isn’t for me. I had a fair bit of time to sketch – the boy took ages to come to terms with his huge glass of hot chocolate and chocolate brownie. He bounced for hours after.
