Landscape, Mars Lumograph 100 2H pencil and Staedtler 0.1 'Fineliner'
pigment pen on 10" x 8" stretched canvas
The scene looks calm and quiet as a drawing (I have omitted some of the loose elements, such as chairs, a table, crates and bits of foliage) but it is a very lively place with lots of activity - the buildings on the right are Hanks Cafe and Bar and lots of other shops are to be discovered down the path behind the salon.
This drawing took me a while and I notice the roof line is a bit 'off'; however, the roof on the left is actually like that. When I was happy with the drawing, I went over the pencil lines with a permanent black pen then erased most of the pencil. I then applied acrylic paint...
... oh dear! Maybe I was tired but I made a proper 'Horlicks' of it! I intend to paint over it using different colours and, if that improves it, I'll do another post.
I'm enjoying looking at all the '30 in 30' entries - so much talent out there! Well done everyone and thank you for sharing.
