i used every single ounce of brain power i had to figure this out. it would have been easier for me to pick up the cars and move them rather than try and draw them. but i decided to save my strength for the telephone poles and the long winding road and the fence and the distant building on the hill that doesn't look like it's on a hill in my picture.
these are serious matters. for the novice urban sketcher. i endeavor to study and practice.
the telephone poles really confounded me with their wires and clamps and bolts and lines going this way and that. also i think squirrels are zip-lining down that droopy line at night and making it sag. otherwise why would it be so droopy?
those of you in my TICKET TO VENICE class might remember the day i returned to the apartment and showed you this enormous chart from the 1930's that i had found. i decided i would cover my umbrian sketchbook with it.
sure it's of the persian gulf but who cares about that silly detail? so far i've put together 3 signatures, but might add a 4th. also i may just carry the sewn individual signatures and stitch them into the book cover when i get home. it will be easy to just throw one of the signatures in my bag for that day's sketching & writing. we'll see. this is all a big experiment.
and i a crafty mad scientist.
