Sketching in Manchester, #4 – Castlefield


Drawing under the bridges of Castlefield, Manchester, was amazing. I love the perspectives and size of this place, and all the details! The care that was put into building this back in the day! The brick work, the cast iron details, bolts en masse… Wow. Just wow.


Top drawing: 19 x 15 cm, fude nib fountain pen with De Atramentis document ink and watercolours,  bottom: 19,5 x 28,5 cm, UniPin fineliner and watercolours, both on Stillman & Birn alpha series sketchbook pages.

    Speaking of wow, you sure nailed it — all that beautiful girding and rust and grime! Castlefield could keep a sketcher busy for years.

    Such wonderful drawings! How long do these take to do? Do you ever do work in progress posts? I would love to see your process.

    • I don´t know how long I sat there, Michelle. One and a half hour for the top one, maybe?
      I like to see process too, I just never think of taking the photos of what I do while I´m at it! ;)

    Woah! Vilken detaljrikedom! Vilket tålamod du måste ha. Kan du höra mina applåder? :)
