Magical images with
turrets and bubbling
rooftops created fairy-tale
building imagery that is
so so different from our
buildings in the USA.
I was intimidated by them…
and surprised at that!
I started by blocking the building in pencil —
I am sorry I didn’t take a picture of that for you but if I get to do another I will.
then I began in the center with detail, moving outward,
inking with a Platinum Carbon fountain pen in Platinum Carbon Waterproof ink.
I drew it a bit to big so it sort of floats on the paper —
I meant to give it context to the buildings around it and the street below,
because it is not plopped down on the street level — there are stairs.
Watercolor took much less time, and I may do the next one in a
fantasy manner, adding magical colors as if the building is a fairy building,
as they sort of lend themselves to bright color!
