This is a quick doodlewash of some little french church, mostly to play with shadows and perspective. I used a limited palette again. This time just Naples Yellow, Alazarin Crimson, French Ultramarine, Burnt Sienna and Sap Green (Actually didn’t use my fave Quinacridone Gold this time!)
It’s another sketch from the #DrawingAugust challenge, so we’re still in the French theme. I think I’m going to try a famous french person soon, just to try my other personal challenge… people. I’m still not super comfortable or at ease with the idea of drawing people so architecture and scenes like this one are perfect way to avoid them. But, as always, I’m going to just go for it soon!
I love these little french towns. It seems so quaint and calm. Life in the city can get a little stressful at times, and places like this seem filled with peace. Likely, that’s not entirely the case, but it looks that way so they are really relaxing to draw.
