End of the Walk

I have just completed these two images for my coursework. The exercise is to do a 'limited palette study' of one of our recently drawn perspective sketches. The scene is the end of a three mile walk we do regularly at Marston Locks and reservoirs, near Tring. If you follow the 'yellow route' clockwise from the car park, you end up overlooking the trees and pub. If it's late, it is all lit up which is nice.
I chose to use the traditional colours: brown, sanguine, black and white.

The original sketch is 10" square, whereas the coloured drawing is a 21" square and the vanishing points are quite a way to the left and right of the picture frames.

  1. Nice work, Sharon. The perspective actually looks more right in the finished drawing than in the perspective sketch.

    Perhaps I should try to do a few "limited palette" exercise. Thanks for inspiration.
