Whilst at the local library I made this pencil study of Lowry's St John's Church in Manchester. I loved the strong perspective. The way the church stands tall & proud, and yet also within the hum drum buildings of the houses, shops and offices.
I'm happy with it; the repeated overworking to get the balance of depth on the planes to work and the suggested details on the office facades. Making studies of other artist's works is something I've never done before, but I can see the purpose of it. It helped me to understand how Lowry had created the piece, technically. It also helped me see what elements I related to, what it was about the picture that held me.
Meanwhile, at home, I carried on drawing figures. The weather had turned to light snow, and people were wrapping up more.
I'm writing this blog entry while staying at my sisters house, and I can't wait to get home, back to my regular view and routing of drawing.
