I’ve always wanted to do an urban night scene.
This sketch of Canada Square, Canary Wharf in London is from a photo I took about 11 months ago. We had a lovely dinner at the restaurant though I can’t remember it’s name.
Though this is the inevitable ugly stage I see the potential. Lots of reserved light, the wash on the pedestrian walk, and some degree of success with the perspective. Even this rough it achieves the feeling I’m looking for.
The darks are hinted at. There are no real shadows yet. It may serve as a template for a larger work or not.
Optimistic. Still lots to figure out. What would another artist add or take away? What would you change?
