Biro ink drawings

Architectural Sketch

This is done in red and blue biro. It shows the differences between the Norman and Perpendicular style of cathedral architecture. I also shows how the Norman cathedrals were converted into the Perpendicular style. Again with the geekdom! Sorry...

Hereford Cathedral – Tracery at West End

I really like church architecture, in case you hadn't noticed! I'm especially fascinated by tracery, rib-vaulting and column capitals... Sad, I know. This sketch is of some tracery around the stained glass windows. The proportion used by Medieval architects and stonemasons is amazing! It's all done in thirds! Sad geek alert...

Buildwas Abbey

This was the first sketch I'd done in years! It's done on ruled paper with a biro of all things! I copied it from a tourist information booklet (the photo is attached to the sketch). Drawing the columns got a little boring toward the end, but I always enjoy the cross-hatching bit!

Bolton Priory

The perspective is a little off on this sketch. I used proper arty paper for this one, but it's still done in biro! I am a truly professional person...
