September 26


The Cincinnatian Hotel, built in 1882. All was going fine till I got to the arch, when I realised that the picture was too skinny for its height. Oh well. EDM Challenge #29: Draw something architectural.

It still looks really neat. Love the paper as the background too. do you know the name of the paper?

Hashi, I love it, it looks beautiful. How long were you there? Was it a vacation? Hope to see you soon on another crawl.

I like the effect of the toned paper, too. And even if the proportion was a bit off in the height... it doesn't really matter. It's a great drawing and shows us some beautiful details.

I like it...very interesting...especially the use of colored ink and paper

Lin said...

BEAUTIFUL!! The selection of paper as a background is so nicely highlighted by the color of ink and fine details you've drawn!!

Wendee said...

It's lovely; we'd never know about the proportions, 'cept that you told us. I've been away too long -I'll enjoy catching up - the sketches from your trip look great!

An interesting part of architecture, and very well done!

Alison said...

well, since I've gotten here so late, I'll just have to second what everyone else has said, except I know it's not a vacation and you want to get back to your own bed:)

I really like the design-y quality of this drawing. It seems like it could be the picture on a deck of cards or wallpaper or fabric. It's got such rhythm and movement and depth.

Oh, I LOVE drawings like these where the architecture is a bit skewed! They are SO much more interesting than something perfectly accurate---and they really get the character of a building so much better. This is absolutely charming!
