Project 1: Some Different Views

Drawing Your Home

Looked at drawings and paintings from range of books I had ( inhibited by local library at Chester where art books are to be ordered rather than browsed as few in stock!)
Spent time studying The paintings of Sickert as I was entranced by those in Tate Britain and the many painted of Interiors.

As a result I could view parts of the house that could form a good perspective and possible range of tonal qualities.

Focused on SPACE and tried to use a good range of charcoal tone to depict what I saw, especially nearness/ distance in this period house.

Enjoyed the expression of 'looking though' in charcoal as the light from doorways and windows was interesting, creating illusion in itself.
