Sketching Faringdon, part 3

My last couple of posts have been about sketching in the Market Square in Faringdon, Oxfordshire. I’ve since been back and drawn a third part to add to this panorama – this is the drawing below…

Sketching Faringdon Pt.3

If you are wondering why the building on the right has been left largely undrawn it’s because it is currently under a mass of scaffolding and plastic (photo below).

This is The Old Crown Coaching Inn. After chatting to a couple of locals, it seems apparent that the scaffolding isn’t going anywhere soon. However, if it does get removed in the not too distant future I might get to go back and draw that as well.

After scanning and joining my sketches together, this panoramic view is the result…

I then went over the line work with a technical pen to add emphasis and some more detail. With a bit of judicious cropping I got to this version of the drawing, below.

My final version of this panorama so far

I’ve also done a quick coloured version of this in acrylics (below).

The next step is to tidy these up and turn them into prints that are suitable for selling. That is an easy sentence to say and a little more complicated to do, but I hope to keep you posted when I’ve made a little more progress…
