Another exercise we were asked to do in our visual diary was some quick urban landscape drawings.
This is the view from my front living room window. Kind of. None of the buildings are that bright and colourful but they are all cute little terrace houses. I’m still not the master with pastels, but I like the childlike roughness of this anyway. And if you look in the right hand corner of this one you can see Lizzy’s claw marks again. She’s always trying to art.
This is my favourite house in my street. It’s all boarded up and was previously a squat. Shortly after I finished this drawing a sign was put up to notify the local residents that it and the abandoned building next door are being knocked down to put up town houses. Sad Face.
