This week I have spent most of my time creating collaged notecards and bookmarks but I have been planning out some time for drawing or sketching – something I also enjoy. I want to share another location that I sketched this summer while in Europe. I only spent two nights in Lincoln but I was overwhelmed by the majesty of the massive Cathedral and the size and power of the castle. These two sit next to each other with a small square between. On each site a protecting gatehouse guards the important sites. I started a sketch of the gate that guardsthe cathedral. Here is the original.

 

 

Gate to Cathedral, Lincoln

 

 

And here is my sketch…I didn’t have time to work out all the problems with perspective. I do not have good visual intuition about perspective so I make many mistakes as I sketch and then have to correct them… guess I need practice! practice! practice!

PS I am having a horrible time working with the new block editor and am sorry for all of the odd formatting. I just don’t seem to be able to get my posts to look the way I want 😦
