Everyday Matters Challenge #29: Something Architectural

school!
robert poole middle
This week, school started. I live across the street from the Robert Poole Middle School, so I thought that it'd be an appropriate tribute to the new school year and good fodder for my sketching practice.

sorry the line quality is so hard to see. i always forget how poorly these things can scan.

  1. Glad to see you joining in, Seeks! Great drawing! I like the blue door accent. Don't worry about keeping up. I'm the one who posts the challenges and there are probably 10 or more I haven't done yet. Just pick and choose what you feel like. No pressure.

  9. Yay! so nice to see you drawing. I am glad EDM folks let you in. I like your attention to detail. Isn't the real color of that door a much more sickley blue? It looks too nice in your drawing. =)

  10. yeah... i guess you could say that the door was a more sickly blue in real life. but i don't really have that color, and i'm still playin' around with my caran d'ache crayons/watercolors to get mixing decent. i tried to use them for another piece and i realized how inept i am with them. so this blue will have to do.

  11. This is really nice -- lots of great details! And getting to change the color of the door to one you like is the GREATEST advantage of being the artist -- therefore, you have permission in the future to paint doors purple, even if they're actually muddy brown. ;-D

  12. what a wonderful old building! I love the very tall windows and the neat looking grill work on top of the roof, touch of blue on the door, love it!

    It looks like you had fun drawing this this, it's so beautifully observed!
