Weekend buildings & gestures

Sail Loft Building, 4.4.15

Sail Loft Building, 4.4.15

I actually spent a little more time drawing than I anticipated this weekend.  I’ve been wanting to try drawing buildings/architecture, & on Saturday, I decided to draw this “Sail Loft” building from Salem, MA.  I outlined it & detailed it in ink as well.  This was done in my new pocket-sized notebook with a Micron pen.  It’s really hard to get all those details in when you’re working on such a small drawing.

I have mixed feelings about this one, like everything I do, but overall it turned out better than I expected.  I really don’t have any experience drawing this sort of stuff, so it was a challenge.  It actually took forever to do!

This is the House of the Seven Gables, also in Salem, MA, which I drew yesterday.  Parts of this I like better than the Sail Loft building above.  However, it was more challenging & a lot of the angles are off.  Plus, I’m still getting used to shading in ink – it’s more difficult than in pencil.

So either way, I’ve finally gotten in some architecture drawing & I’m not at as bad of a starting point as I anticipated, so that’s good.

And finally, to close, here are some gesture drawings that I did on Friday:
