Part 3. Project 2. Exercise 3. 360 degree studies

15 minutes sketching an expansive landscape looking at North, East, South and West.

I was a bit dispirited by how boring these sketches were! I prefer the conte, charcoal and drawing pen sketch both because the media made it more lively and also because the composition had much more depth than the other drawings.

conte, charcoal and drawing pen. My favourite drawing out of the four.
I wanted to try a low horizon. Without colour in the sky it is very dull.
The composition is quite interesting but the use of a soft pencil makes it all a bit meh.
I like the clouds and birds – gives the image some feeling of the wind blowing. Otherwise dull composition.
