Artytechture.

There’s a lovely little town in Ontario that is a favourite of mine, it’s full of quaint little shops and heritage buildings and I love spending time there.


This little beauty is Fulford Preperator College in Merrickville and was a joy to create.


I have had no formal training in perspective but have read some books and was feeling brave enough to tackle this en plein air (painting outside).


I started by deciding just how much of the building I wanted to capture and then went about figuring out the scale in my head.


Then I layed out the format on paper with a pencil and once that felt right I went over the outline with my waterproof pen and added the details.


Up next was adding the colour, I have to say that I’m really pleased with the fact that I accomplished this much in just a morning.


I’m enjoying this new technique (well newish for me anyway) of working with both fine liners and watercolour, the results that I achieve have a illustrated feel that I quite enjoy.


Looking forward to more creative adventures in the future.
