Yes, this is the second in a series of posts where I share sketches with you, but you’d be forgiven for forgetting such a series actually existed because it’s been 2 years since the first one. I’ve been trying to carve out a little bit of time each day to sketch, but I haven’t been trying very hard. I finally brought in some watercolor brushes so that I could experiment with coffee washes:
I also had an idea to start doing a “visual glossary” of architecture. To do that I would take a picture of a space like this:
And use typography to label the architectural components, like this:
The idea has potential, I think. It falls a little flat at the wall area, I might have to incorporate some shading or edit the areas that get the typographical treatment. I’m also wondering if it would be more clear if I picked one word per element to repeat (“beam beam beam”, instead of “beam”, “heavy timber”, “wood”, “structure”).
I’ll let you know in two years when I decide to draw something again.
We’re limping towards 200 posts here, I’m thinking I’ll just ignore that milestone. Or not. Check back in a couple weeks.
