Weekly Sketch – Wall Gate at Alcazaba of Málaga Part 2 – 20/03/2015

Last week my weekly sketch was a view of a wall gate at the Alcazaba of Málaga in pen. Pen is my favourite medium to draw in; and one I am most comfortable with; but I like to challenge myself because I can find out new ways of portraying things. So I have redrawn the image last week again in pen but leaving a lot of white space; and then in coloured pencil and watercolour. As you can see they are not the most impressive of images! but within them there are colours, textures and forms I like, that could all be drawn together within print form. I have included the sketch from last week too so you can see the process of making.

  1. There’s an interesting contrast in the colored images. They seem so bright and cheery but then there’s a gate with black bars and sharp points that seems a little intimidating. I like seeing the same scene in different mediums. 🙂

    • Thanks cavepainter; it’s always interesting and often surprising to find out what people find in images you make, I never thought of the gate being intimidating in the coloured images – but I see what you mean, that gate lower right is very ‘spiky’!
