First a lunchtime sketch of Ramsgate Clockhouse or Maritime Museum from the Royal
A photo from the same location.
The weather is just reaching the point where it is good enough to sketch outside and I am getting back into practise sketching familiar local buildings
The idea here is to do a quick freehand sketch, without any assistance whatsoever, like holding your pencil at arms length or drawing lines meeting at a vanishing point and then compare the sketch with the photo and work out what went wrong.
Of course there was a time, before the invention of photography, where I guess the artist was trying to get as close to a photograph as possible, and I guess there is a sense where I could just as well take a photograph instead.
In terms of how quick is quick the sketch must have taken about ¾ of an hour, I get an hour for lunch and managed to leave 10mins early today, had the all day breakfast inc cup of tea in The Royal £5 so I guess I was in there for about an hour and it took ¼ hour to eat it.
I may ramble on
