2 point perspective. ft. Watercolour #tbBarcelona

In this session, we were told to use watercolour and the technique we learned on perspective drawing. I use a photo that I t when I was on the trip to Barcelona, I was amazed and fond of their architecture, unique and individual. I printed off the photo so it enables be to have a clear perspective of the image, where the buildings are located and the accuracy of the architecture. I then pinpoint where the point of perspectives are, to smoothen the process of sketching I also folded the paper to allow me to see it a clearer picture of what everything is (hence the fold marks).

After making marks and lines on the image, I then have a smoother process, where I then quickly sketched out using pencil and the help of a ruler. Then I start to layer and build in layers of watercolour, creating a dissolving effect, an illusion like painting. Last step, a final touch up, I use a pencil to go over the exterior of the building to define it further, allowing the architecture to stand out from the background.
